Recent Case Law by Goldberg Attorneys

Kumalo v Fidelity - Decision handed down on 06 May 2021 per Snyman AJ

Mr Khumalo was working for Fidelity as a cash-in-transit driver. He claimed that Fidelity failed to supply him with a third man, which forced him to be the driver and the third man. But you cannot be two people, can you? Anyway, he won his case at the Bargaining Council, the Company Reviewed it, and the matter was referred back. At Arbitration, he was successful again and was reinstated. The Company again sought to review it. Snyman AJ found that the Employee's dismissal was fair. The Commissioner was rebuked for failing to have regard to the evidence of the Company witnesses, for failing to recognise the severity of the misconduct and for failing to take into account that Khumalo showed no appreciation of the risk that he caused to the Company and that he showed no remorse whatsoever but instead sought to deny that he was in any way negligent. #arbitration #law #compliance #employmentlaw

Samancor Chrome (Pty) Ltd t/a Tubatse Ferrochrome v Dirk Willem Potgieter - Decision handed down on 16 February 2021

In this EXCLUSIVE landmark decision, Snyman AJ was called upon to decide when a reinstatement order issued by the LAC correcting the original Award of 12 months compensation takes effect; further, if the Company can counterclaim against a Section 77 Application for outstanding salaries by claiming that the Employee had an alternative source of income (that is he worked elsewhere). This is a must-read; it will become the bible in matters of such nature. Well done Acting Judge Snyman #law #lawyer #employmentlaw #SNYMANAJ #litigation #REINSTATEMENT #COUNTERCLAIM #Employmentlaw #LOCUSCLASSICUS.

The Judge found that the LAC's Judgment meant that the Award dated 2008 should have set out that the Employee was reinstated with backpay up until the date he was to be reinstated in terms of the Award, which could only have been in 2008. The claim for outstanding salaries from 2008 onwards was not claimable. The Arbitration Award only disposed of the restoration of the employment contract through of reinstatement. Set out that: a Commissioner cannot be called upon to predict the future and can only cater to the situation at the time of the Award. In a salary claim, the Employer can use alternative income sources as a defence.

Reference from a vacation worker: "VACATION PROGRAM FEEDBACK"

"I like the location of the firm. For the firm to be in the same building with the Labour Court seems to be a bonus for it. I think this was a good business move. The Director and his staff seemed to have a good working relationship. I could say there is an open door policy. I even applied the open door policy, and the impact of it was positive."
