Recent Case Law Report

- Labour Court

David Victor & 200 Others v Chep South Africa (Pty) Ltd - Heard 03 September 2020; decision handed down 16 September 2020

A very important decision hot off the press – In a unanimous decision, the Court found that it is the duty of the person deciding the matter to look at the true situation and the relationships between companies in deciding whether a company is a TES and as such whether the deeming provision applies making the contractor’s employees the employees of the Company which the Contractor has contracted to. Importantly the Court looked at the Contract between the Company and the Contractor and decided that because the company sets out that it produces, sells and supplies pallets whereas it was the contractor that made the pallets and they only sold the pallets and because the Company controlled the production of the pallets for them and the quality and safety according to the suppliers' contract that the true relationship was one of a TES and as such the employees of the Company were deemed to be (which has been previously interpreted to equal ARE) the employees of the Company.
