Labour Legal Services
The trick to growing any business is building a successful team. However, as any business owner will tell you, growing a team is one of the most difficult challenges facing any company.
There are, among other issues, formulation and compliance with company policies, employee discipline, restructuring and the dreaded retrenchments and/or terminations.
Without the luxury of a dedicated Human Resources Department or an in-house Legal Counsel, entrepreneurs are left to figure out the complexity of labour and employment law by themselves… until now!
Legalese is a creative legal agency, whose aim is to make running and operating a small to medium-size business easier and smoother while staying compliant of South African regulations.
