THE SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIETY FOR LABOUR LAW
The SA Society for Labour Law is a members association for those involved in all aspects of Labour Law in South Africa
The South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW) is a non-profit organisation. The aim of the Society is to promote the advancement of labour law as a legal and academic discipline, and encourage collaboration between lawyers and other experts within the field of labour law.
SASLAW has over 1300 members in South Africa. Membership is made up of judges, advocates, attorneys, candidate attorneys, HR and IR management, government officials, CCMA commissioners, and employers’ organisations. SASLAW has chapters in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and the Free State.
Seminars and workshops are arranged throughout the year on topical issues, which suit the wide range of members.
Following the pilot SASLAW Pro Bono project at the Labour Court in Johannesburg, the Pro Bono programme has now been established as an indispensable cornerstone of the administration of justice at the four Labour Courts around the country. This fact is clearly demonstrated by the over 13 000 clients who have been assisted since the inception of the project in February 2011 to date.
LRC Fundraiser Invite
The Legal Resources Centre (LRC) invites you to a fundraiser. We will be screening the multi-award winning documentary film, The Shore Break.
Directed by Ryley Grunenwald and co-produced with Odette Geldenhuys.
Two cousins from a rural community have opposing visions and plans to develop their homeland on South Africa's Wild Coast. The film is structured around an absorbing microcosm of the clash between tradition and “progress” when there are natural resources to be plundered. The Shore Break is an engrossing film exposing a standoff between corrupt pro-mining forces and a South African coastal community fighting to preserve their traditional way of life.
