Labour law expert and part time Senior Commissioner at the CCMA with 30 years in the industry reveals

50 HR Policies and Procedures your company MUST have if you want to stay out of trouble at the CCMA

Dear Small Business Owner,

Having managed my own department for years, I know how hard dealing with employee issues really is.

I know just how traumatic, time-consuming and costly it is fighting an employee dispute at the CCMA

I also know that these days, more and more businesses are opening themselves up to litigation and costly CCMA cases because their company policies aren’t fully up to date, or don’t include processes to handle the latest changes to the business landscape.

That’s why I recently sat down with two renowned HR experts, Janine Nieuwoudt and Barney Jordaan, to discuss a solution to this problem.


I’ve brought together the best minds in the business to either stay out of the CCMA, or improve your chances of success should it ever get there

With more than 20 years of experience in the HR realm and as the Editor-in-Chief for the Practical Guide to Human Resources, Janine knows just how much having the right HR information at hand is worth to a business.

I couldn’t agree more – and neither could our colleague Barney.

After all, as a past labour law professor, now labour law expert and part time Senior Commissioner at the CCMA, Barney’s seen it all: Disputes over leave… Employee grievances that got out of hand… Businesses being sued for not hiring a certain job candidate… You name it, he’s seen it.

Throughout the 30 plus years he’s spent dealing with labour law issues, there’s one truth that remains:

The ONLY way to seamlessly protect your business from being dragged to the CCMA every time you have an employee problem is to have a comprehensive HR Policy Manual in place.

It’s so important, in fact, Barney believes you can manage your HR and IR risks far more effectively if you put the appropriate HR Policy or Procedure in place.

And today, we want to help you do just that…

put my HR nightmares behind me


Don’t leave company practice “open to interpretation” ever again

These days, handling employee issues is a nightmare!

You need to ensure your company’s outlined a policy and procedure for just about everything!

From the use of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to smoking; anti-bribery; corruption; drug and substance abuse; family responsibility leave and more – if you haven’t covered your bases, HR issues like these are a minefield waiting to blow up in your face.

And, most of the time, it’ll happen when you receive a notice to attend a CCMA process.


It’s simple really.

You see, what most businesses forget is that if they don’t have a policy in place to handle situations, common practice becomes the defining policy, regardless of the details.

Take religious leave for example.

Just because your company employs people with different religious beliefs doesn’t mean you have to pay them when they take religious holidays.

After all, there are seven major Jewish holidays in which Jews are prohibited to work by their faith. This works out to an extra 12 days leave your Jewish employees need to take for religious reasons. And if your employee is Muslim, he'll request around eight religious holidays a year. 

But how does this affect your company?

Well, it all depends on what your HR Policy on Religious Leave dictates. 

For example, you can decide to either:

  1. Let your employee take annual leave or unpaid leave… or
  2. Swap their religious leave for another public holiday.

Regardless of what you decide, you need to ensure you have a policy that clearly states what your company’s exact stance on religious leave is so you can prevent disputes over this issue.

But this isn’t unique to religious leave… It applies to each and every HR situation you’ll ever come across.

Don’t wait for that “when the need arises” moment to put the appropriate HR Policy or Procedure in place

Think about it…

Have you told your staff what you expect from them when it comes to issues like:

But don’t think it stops at ‘telling’ them.

In fact, you need to do more than just tell your staff about the behaviour you expect and the consequences of breaking these rules. You also need to have proof that you've informed them these policies are in place.

If you don’t, your next HR dispute could not only land you in hot water with the CCMA… It could be the very reason you fork over thousands of rands in compensation when you lose the case.

Luckily, you can solve all this by putting a comprehensive HR Policy Manual in place…

And today, Janine, Barney and I are going to ensure you have all 50 of the most crucial HR Policies and Procedures in place at your company so you never have to worry about an employee taking you to the CCMA for common HR complaints ever again!
