The indispensable role of legal representation in CCMA proceedings

CCMA legal representation

During most employment disputes in South Africa, the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) plays a pivotal role in resolving conflicts between employers and employees. When facing matters that require CCMA intervention, securing legal representation is not just a wise choice—it’s a strategic necessity.

Understanding the CCMA:

The CCMA serves as a crucial forum for the resolution of employment disputes, ranging from unfair dismissals and unfair labour practices to disputes over wages and conditions of employment. Navigating these proceedings demands a deep understanding of labour laws, procedures, and the intricacies of dispute resolution—an area where SVN Attorneys excel.
