Your six duties as a designated employer
 
You need to make sure you:
If you don't comply, the Department of Labour will slap you with fines of up to R2.7 million or 10% of your turnover for each instance of non-compliance. They've recently taken 1400 companies to court for EE non-compliance.
 
But I don't want this happen to you. So I've teamed up with EE professionals like Janine Nieuwoudt – Editor of the HR Handbook, and Lizle Louw – Editor of the Labour Law for Managers Handbook to help you avoid these crippling fines.
