Employment Practices Liability

It is common knowledge that the South African business environment is amongst the most highly regulated in the world. Seeking to protect the rights of employees, onerous obligations have been applied by our legislators to the employer in both procedure and substance regarding employment practices.

Even in cases where due employment standards have been met, ease of access by the employee to the labour courts results in strained disputes with financial consequences that are not necessarily only confined to awards that may be made against him/her.

It is accordingly suggested that this policy may be of special interest to SMEs.

Cover will provide indemnity against:

  • Legal fees
  • Awards
  • Settlements

following actual or alleged unfair labour practices brought about at proceedings held through forums such as:

  • CCMA
  • Bargaining Councils
  • Arbitration
