Publisher’s summary: Labour Litigation and Dispute Resolution, first published in 2010, is the most comprehensive exposition of practice and procedure in the various forums charged with resolving employment and labour disputes in South Africa. It provides an overview of the nature, powers and jurisdiction of the CCMA, bargaining councils, the Labour Court and private arbitrators, and guides the reader though the maze of rules and procedures that must be followed to process matters through these forums, while giving useful tips on how to avoid or surmount obstacles that might arise along the way. This book is more than a practice manual. Written in the clear and lively style which characterises the author’s writing, it sets out the principles underlying the issues discussed, and illustrates them with many examples from decided cases. The 4th edition of Labour Litigation and Dispute Resolution will be an indispensable part of any practitioner’s library.

For the convenience of practitioners, this edition includes as appendices the full text of the rules of the CCMA, the Labour Appeal and Labour Courts, as well as the Labour Court Practice Manual. This work is also available in electronic form, which is updated quarterly.”
