Introducing the Third Edition of CCMA: A Commentary on the Rules by Peter Kantor
The third edition of CCMA: A Commentary on the Rules, an established and handy guide to the Rules of the CCMA, reproduces the newly published Guidelines on Misconduct Arbitrations in terms of the Labour Relations Act, updates the law and commentary on the Rules, and also includes a useful Practical Guide for an Unfair Dismissal Claim in the CCMA.
Furthermore, the book provides valuable insurance against tripping up on technicalities. It explains the Rules of the CCMA in non-legal language.
Each Rule is fully reproduced and then explained in non-legal language, in line with the original aim of the CCMA – making it accessible to the layperson and freeing it from the legal technicalities that bedevilled the old Industrial Court.
The book is intended both for commissioners and professionals, as well as for the non-professional user of the CCMA, as a guideline on how to tread in what is often perceived as the province of lawyers. It is therefore not a technical legal text, with references and citations.
