Disciplining and dismissing employees is too often a necessary part of business. However, it is crucial that we do so in a legally compliant and fair manner in order to avoid our dismissal decisions being reversed by the CCMA and the high cost of compensation orders and litigation. We know that the law strictly enforces a myriad of disciplinary procedures. As a result managers who chair disciplinary hearings must have a very strong grasp of what steps to follow and of how to arrive at decisions that are accepted in law as being fair.

During this seminar we will:

  • Gain a clear understanding of the law of discipline and dismissal.
  • Unpack the meaning of procedural and substantive fairness
  • Detail the rights of employees who are being disciplined
  • Uncover all the hidden pitfalls in the paths of those who chair disciplinary hearings
  • Clearly show how to balance effective disciplinary hearings with labour law compliance


  • Private and public sector labour relations and human resources managers, directors and practitioners
  • Change management practitioners
  • Senior executives and line managers in all sectors


PRESENTER: Ivan Israelstam, CEO of Labour Law Management Consulting has over 15 years’ experience in change management and CCMA litigation, and 4 years as a CCMA Commissioner. He writes numerous labour law columns in major publications and is the author of three labour law books.
