We have pleasure in announcing the finalised programme for the upcoming SALLR live broadcast seminar circuit. Five separate live broadcasts are to take place, respectively on 12, 24 and 27 August and 1 and 3 September 2020.
Last year, the SALLR team, for the first time, introduced its earnings guidelines for the corporate, formal, informal and non-corporate sectors and, this year, this topic will again receive attention. However, what the current coronavirus scenario has made everybody particularly aware of is the inequality in South Africa – this year, we will analyse the results of two important research papers produced in this regard and their relevance to you.
A special feature of this year’s seminar is our analysis of the environment post the lockdown. Our viewpoint is that this does not simply entail dismissals for operational requirements but a carefully-crafted application of relevant organisational redesign principles.
Every year, delegates forward us various topics that they have selected to be specifically dealt with during the seminar and this year has been no exception. We have selected four such topics for discussion on each of the live broadcast days, from 9h00 to 9h30.
At approximately 09h30 on each of the live broadcast days, we will present you with our analysis of the latest developments, during the past 12 months, pertaining to contractual rights and obligations. This will be followed by an analysis of all the latest developments pertaining to the statutory environment within which employers and employees operate, namely, misconduct, unfair labour practices, unfair discrimination, etc.
As part of our specific focus during the challenges we all face regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and the specific challenges for all stakeholders to survive, detailed attention will be given to the latest developments regarding operational requirements and transfers of businesses as going concerns.
Now, more than ever, practitioners have to be up-to-date and informed as to the latest developments regarding all labour law, employee relations and human resources issues. Your established one stop shop providing you with these solutions is the SALLR annual seminars.
The SALLR team cannot wait to, once again, entertain you and, this year, instead of meeting at all the venues as we have done in the past, our live broadcast sessions will be used to convey the content of our seminar workbook as well as our PowerPoint presentations.
It is apparent that government initially took the viewpoint that vaccination against Covid-19 should not be compulsory. However, it appears that the recently-promulgated Consolidated Directions on Occupational Health and Safety Measures (‘the Directions’) signifies a very different approach.
