A Shout Out at all Employers

Companies avoid utilising the services of an independent chairman due to the COST implications.  WRONG CALL!!!!

Utilising the services of an independent chairman has the following important advantages:

Has no prior knowledge of the incident and is therefore OBJECTIVE

Will ensure that there is a fair reason for the dismissal.

Will ensure that the correct process is followed.

Is professional and understands how to analyze evidence and derive to a logical conclusion.

Most important of all is the likelihood that an independent chairman will reach the same verdict as a CCMA commissioner, since he/she is also a labour law expert.  The verdict will be purely based on fact and not opinion.
