grandparents

It is important to note the difference between an order for care and one for contact.

Quite a few years ago; and before the new Children's Act came into being; I was involved in a matter in the High Court in Cape Town where a grandmother wanted to exercise rights of access to her two grandchildren but because of an argument with her daughter, the mother of the children, she was being denied access to her grandchildren, Quite rightly she was not prepared to let that happen and took her daughter to the High Court in an Application to get a court order allowing her access to her grandchildren and she got such an order; which was unusual at the time for the reasons given below.

I remembered this case when I got the following inquiry in this last week which is in a similar vein and the facts were strangely similar.

cyber crime web South Africans who use social media platforms will soon have to be much more careful and think twice before posting on social media

At The Legal Advice Office; we receive enquiries from time to time about defamatory posts having been posted on various platforms and requests for assistance as to what one can do in those circumstances.

Clearly, some of these posts are defamatory and the Law of Defamation can be utilised to protect one's good name and reputation.

However the government authorities are also aware of this increasing trend and have promulgated the Cyber Crimes Bill; and as a result, one must be careful as to what one posts these days as malicious messaging over social media could soon send you to prison.

A few weeks ago we did a blog of retrenchment and that was aimed at employees.

Today we turn our attention to businesses and specifically companies.
