About the book: 
Now in its second revised edition, Labour Law in Practice  has sold over 10 000 copies and has helped numerous South African managers and business owners navigate their way safely through what sometimes seems to be an impenetrable maze of labour law and practice. Andrew Levy, arguably South Africa’s best-known labour resource, has over 50 years’ experience in the field, and has taught and trained thousands of students and managers.
In Andrew’s opinion, labour relations are not difficult – it is really a matter of common sense and being able to judge an issue based on the facts. His teaching method is to reduce complex issues into simple and logical steps, and then to show how these can be taken with confidence.
Written in an easy-to-understand style and laid out in an accessible format, this book covers all essential labour law areas, including hiring new staff, terminating employment contracts, handling poor performance and misconduct, and managing staff attendance, leave and remuneration. The new edition has been updated to include topics such as minimum wage, the use of short-term contracts and labour brokers, up-to-the-minute labour law amendments, and strike handling. An essential read for any employer or business owner.
