About this publication:

First published in 2010, this book is the most comprehensive exposition of practice and procedure in the various forums charged with resolving employment and labour disputes in South Africa. It provides an overview of the nature, powers and jurisdiction of the CCMA, bargaining councils, the Labour Court and private arbitrators, and guides the reader though the maze of rules and procedures that must be followed to process matters through these forums, while giving useful tips on how to avoid or surmount obstacles that might arise along the way.

This book is more than a practice manual. It sets out the principles underlying the issues discussed and illustrates them with many examples from decided cases.

Labour Litigation and Dispute Resolution forms one volume of a quartet by the author, which together covers the entire field of labour law as it has developed in South Africa to date. It is also available in electronic form, which is updated quarterly.
