Recent Case Law Report



17 December 2020 Shepherd Chiloane v Trans-Africa Projects (Pty) Ltd

The Employee put a RACIST remark as his Whatsapp® status. The remark was not published, but another employee took a screenshot of it. Despite the Employee apologising, he was charged and dismissed. At Arbitration, only the Employee appeared. The Employee set out that he never violated any of the Company's policies, and what is more, he did not believe in the remark. He said he had already been maltreated in the workplace and labelled as a bad person. The Commissioner considered the Employee's evidence. He found that whereas the Employee rightfully had a right to freedom of expression, this right did not extend to propagating hate speech, racist remarks, and impairment of the dignity of others. The Employee appeared not to appreciate the seriousness of his misconduct and the detrimental effect it may have on the workplace. His public sharing of the remarks gave them currency, and as such, it could be reasonably said that he agreed with them even if he did not. Found that the Employee had committed a serious misconduct that rendered the employment relationship untenable. The Employer's code prescribed dismissal as the preferred sanction, and he could not find that the Employee had made out a case allowing for him to deviate therefrom.

How can it be done?  5 tips on how an employer can ensure a smooth transition where one wants to effect a change to a contract of employment. #hr #employment #change #employmentlaw #humanresources #employeeengagement

Tip #1: Consider whether the proposed change will affect the employment contract and whether there is a contractual right to make the change.
Tip #2: Consider why the change is needed and listen to and communicate with employees.
Tip #3: Consider offering employees an incentive to encourage them to accept the change.
Tip #4: Obtain written confirmation of any agreement to a change in the contract.
Tip #5: Carry out the statutory collective consultation process where appropriate.
