 landgrabbing

What is Land Reform?

A few weeks ago in March 2018; we did two blogs on the topic of Expropriation without Compensation. What is the background to this issue?”  In those first two blogs, we concentrated on our interpretation of section 25 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.

Today we received this inquiry: “Could you please explain to me the background to the concept of Expropriation without compensation so that I can better understand the subject?”

This blog, therefore, explains what expropriation is in terms of South African Law, with reference to the current political environment and a focus on the present dispensation’s renewed vigour to speed up and enhance land redistribution and amend the Constitution to permit expropriation without compensation.

 private company

 Setting up a company can be a quick exercise if you have done your homework well

The Legal Advice Office recently received the following query via email.

“I have applied for and been approved to open up a small franchise business. The franchisor, however, requires that I run the franchise business in the name of a private company and not in my own personal name. Where do I start this process if I want to register my own private company; and how do I set a private company up.”

Dismissal

An employer cannot just dismiss you without a fair and impartial disciplinary hearing.

Last week; we received the following email inquiry.

“I was recently fired as a manager of a retail clothing company. The company held me responsible for a certain stock theft that happened under my watch, claiming that I was negligent in my duties. I was asked to leave without any prior verbal warnings, written warnings or even a disciplinary hearing.  Surely, I should at least have been given a fair opportunity to give the company my side of the story and to and show them that I was not negligent in any way in the execution of my duties and that I was in fact innocent. Please advise.”

You are absolutely correct.
