Be well prepared when appearing before the CCMA

Be well prepared when appearing before the CCMA

When you face the CCMA, you better have your act together so you don’t get taken to the cleaners.

Angus Bailie has extensive experience in CCMA cases.

Losing at the CCMA can have costly consequences with reinstatement orders and/or 12 months compensation.

Every employee has the right to refer disputes to the CCMA whether they have a valid case or not. Very often the outcome is not determined on this consideration alone and the skill of the parties becomes important. Commissioners are often perceived to be favouring the employees whilst the employers are penalized for not knowing the Rules. This is more a symptom of not knowing how the battle is fought than not having a good case.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Any CCMA matter is won and lost in the preparation. Half the battle is knowing the rules and being prepared to put your case across effectively.

This training course seeks not only takes you through the Rules of Engagement but also how to effectively prepare and put across your case.
