SOLUTION FOCUSED LEGAL THINKING
WHM Labour Law Advisors has over 15 years’ experience within the Human Resources and Industrial Relations environment.
It would be unrealistic to assume that the practices of Industrial Relations are uncomplicated. Unfortunately the current legislation is very “worker centric” and changes annually, leaving employers very frustrated and their knowledge outdated. WHM Labour Law Advisors solve these frustrations in that they keep their clients updated regarding these changes, which often need to be implemented immediately.
Regarding disciplinary procedures, success is ensured when the Industrial Relations practitioner prepares the employer’s case in such a way that it can be challenged at the appropriate forum. This improved rate of success at the CCMA will save the client paying out compensation when it is not due.
The monthly retainer package available from WHM Labour Lawyer Advisors protects clients from paying out compensation to unethical employees who try to lodge dishonest claims at the CCMA.
The package provides ongoing legal protection and advice, making legal representation more affordable and feasible to employers.

This is a huge benefit to clients in terms of cost-saving as the utilisation of an Industrial relations practitioner to prepare ad hoc legal documentation is very costly.
