SARB Raises Interest Rate - Of Interest Is What One Can Do

[Title]

The Reserve Bank of South Africa (SARB) recently announced that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) had decided to raise the repo rate by 50 basis points, to 4.75% with effect from the 20th of May 2022.

Unlike other areas of law such as criminal litigation, civil litigation or contractual disputes where lawfulness is the cog that wins the day, the fairness of actions is the pedestal upon which a case hinges upon in labour litigation.

Why Having An Employment Contract In Place, Is Not Just Talk

[Title]

Despite being recognised as valid in South African law, verbal agreements are like inscriptions on sand. As soon as strong winds blow over the sand dunes, the inscriptions disappear in the same breath as the wind itself.
