CAPES Communique (30 May 2014)

CAPES has received numerous complaints about certain seminars that are being run at the moment in relation to the Labour Relations Amendment Bill.  Notably the seminar being run by SAGE VIP seems to have employers in our sector concerned.  It has been reported that the presenter of this seminar has been very derogatory towards the Temporary Employment Sector.  If these reports are true, the interpretation being presented is, that the TES is no longer in the picture after 3 months. The interpretation is incorrect.  That this is incorrect has been confirmed by numerous reputable legal firms and senior Council.  Simply put, if the drafters intended that the TES would vanish after 3 months, the amendment would have stated such. 


Unfortunately some practitioners are sensationalising these amendments and not delivering a balanced view or any constructive solutions for business.  Incorrectly implemented these amendments have dramatic costs implications for business.  CAPES and APSO have been directly involved the NEDLAC negotiations, and believe we understand them better than people who have not been close to the process. If you need any solutions to these proposed amendments feel free to contact us so we can share the cost effective business solutions with you.
