Disciplinary action towards, or negotiations with an employee can become an extremely daunting process when employers are not knowledgeable on the legal procedures, or are not correctly informed about these procedures.
Concerning negotiations with employees, there are several different kinds of negotiations that may arise, some of which are more easily handled than others. Any and all negotiations between employers and employees need to be professional and must adhere to certain rules and regulations set out by the South African law.
As is often the case in South Africa, some employees (especially less skilled workers) belong to a trade union or bargaining council which stands between the employer and employee during negotiations. It is often difficult for employers to handle negotiations with these institutions.
As far as disciplinary action is concerned, there are strict rules and regulations set out by the South African law when it comes to initiating disciplinary action against an employee. As with negotiations, disciplinary action needs to be professionally handled and must adhere to all the rules and regulations set out by the South African law. Failure to do so can result in the disciplinary action process being procedurally or substantively incorrect, leading to potentially adverse consequences for the employer.
