The labour law applicable to the education environment is comprehensive and covers a vast variety of aspects that everyone within that environment will encounter at one time or another. In the past, most employees in education may have had a vague understanding of particular laws and regulations regarding conditions of employment, but now it is essential to have a basic understanding of all relevant laws and regulations that apply. Teachers, especially, could find themselves in a proverbial minefield if they do not ensure that they have a working knowledge of education law. This is evidenced by the numerous lawsuits, disputes, mediations, disciplinary hearings and often unpleasant implications for individuals (and their families) that arise from charges against offenders in all sectors of education. Legislative changes resulting from altered circumstances in education have led to the need to be constantly aware of the implications and applications of such changes. This urgent need applies not only to principals, but to everyone involved in education. On the one hand the responsibility for correct application and implementation of education legislation lies with the governing body and the head of an institution, but on the other hand it affects the people who work there. The authors of this book have a keen understanding of this vital need, and address it most effectively from their own invaluable experience that stems from practical involvement and thorough research in the field of education. A sound working knowledge of all the aspects that are addressed in this book undoubtedly improves the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom - a critical goal that needs to be pursued. It also creates a safer environment in which everyone can operate. I am personally very grateful for the contribution that this handy guide makes to the ultimate quality of education in South Africa.
Reform of customary marriage, divorce and succession in South Africa: Living customary law and social realities examines the operation of the Recognition of customary marriages act and the rules of succession formulated in Bhe v Magistrate, Khayelitsha. The book is the outcome of an interdisciplinary research project conducted by the NRF chair in customary law, indigenous values and human rights, the department of sociology at the University of Cape Town, and the National movement of rural women. More than a decade after the enactment of the act and the formulation of the Bhe rules, the research project sought to explore how these laws were being implemented in practice, through the eyes of the individuals living according to customary law, a range of state institutions, including the courts and the Department of home affairs, and traditional leaders. The fieldwork was conducted across six provinces, over a period of 20 months. The findings presented in Reform of customary marriage, divorce and succession in South Africa about the implementation of the act and the Bhe rules will be of interest to a wide range of individuals, court and state officials, and scholars. The authors provide evidence-based research on the implementation of the laws and they outline what remains to be done to improve the implementation of these laws.
Practical advice on all stages of arbitration, from the pre-arbitration stage to the issuing of the award are covered as well as the basic legal principles concerning disputes over alleged unfair dismissal, the basics of the law of evidence and how to prepare for and present a case at arbitration. In addition to this there are sections on the pitfalls of the law of evidence, applications for condonation and reviews – these often being the very issues on which the Labour Court so often sees applicants in review applications being tripped up. Furthermore, a discussion on unfair labour practice arbitrations has been included. No labour law practitioner or trade union representative should be without this book.
In Namibia the 1980s were a dark decade of human rights abuses by South African security forces. Judge David Smuts, then a young Windhoek lawyer, felt compelled to take on the system.
His gripping memoir details several dramatic cases, including the freeing of detainees that had been held secretly for six years, proving that torture was used to extract ‘confessions’ and that Koevoet knowingly killed civilians. Working with the likes of Sydney Kentridge, Geoff Budlender and Arthur Chaskalson, Smuts won legal victories and established a legal centre in the far North, where many misdeeds had taken place. Smuts also takes a fresh look at the assassination of Anton Lubowski, anti-apartheid activist and his close friend.
This highly readable real-life thriller about standing up for what is right sheds light on a shocking, largely untold part of our recent history.
The 13th edition of this title covers key areas of contract, sale of goods, consumer credit, employment and company law, and now includes material on the English legal system and business litigation, of particular interest to business, accounting and finance students.
'Crime and Criminal Justice Policy', second edition, provides a general update and revision, and records the substantial changes in British criminal justice policy and legislation over the last five years, particularly those introduced by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. There is also a new chapter on crime prevention and community safety and more.
The recent introduction of the Consumer Protection Act revolutionised consumer rights in South Africa. Along with that, it also fundamentally altered the way in which businesses are required to treat their clients, imposing a new set of obligations – or at least a formalised set of responsibilities – that had been easily circumnavigated or simply ignored before. Marketing campaigns, returns policies, contracts, quality issues, and a host of business practices had to be reviewed and reappraised. Some businesses have done this, while many blithely continue as if nothing has changed, little appreciating the risks of non-compliance and – perhaps more importantly – failing to appreciate that treating consumers fairly is simply a sound business practice. This new work provides a comprehensive overview of consumer law – not just the Act – in a way that follows the typical chain of consumer transactions. It serves to guide, educate and enlighten the professional, the business person and the consumer alike. No business or professional adviser should be without it. Written by a leading specialist in the field, it is simple, clear, comprehensive, authoritative and accessible.
Class Action Litigation in South Africa is the first book to be published in South Africa dealing with this area of the law. The book collects, describes and interrogates the first-class action judgments in South Africa, aiming to go beyond the existing and ground-breaking Supreme Court of Appeal and Constitutional Court judgments on class actions, and makes practical suggestions regarding the issues that are likely to arise for practitioners, judges and academics as they encounter class actions in South Africa. Class Action Litigation in South Africa seeks to ensure a home-grown understanding of class actions for our country, but also offers the reader first-hand exposure to lessons learnt from international experts in class action litigation. The book thus embraces contributions from around the world that are wide-ranging, straddling the fields of law, economics, social justice and politics. The book presents important and useful insights into class action litigation from local and international experts. The editors and the contributors have all been involved in the leading class action cases in South Africa and abroad.
Law for Purchasing and Supply divides this complex area of the law into five logical parts: chapters introduce a topic area, explain the relevant law and give examples of how the law is applied in practice. This step-by-step approach enables the authors to maintain a comprehensive coverage of the subject, while ensuring it remains accessible. Law for Purchasing and Supply, 3rd edition, has been fully updated to take account of new legislation and case law, including the introduction of the Competition Act 1998 and recent judicial decisions which, together with incoming European legislation, affect basic rights under the Sale of Goods. The relationship between civil and criminal law in this area is examined and the implications of future developments are discussed.

Each chapter is accessible yet detailed enough to be useful. In the scope of this comprehensive work, 32 authors collectively answer the question: What is the role of local government in moving South Africa towards a sustainable future, considering the dictates and scope of environmental law?

Immigration Law in South Africa outlines the existing law applicable to foreigners as reflected in the Immigration Act, the Citizenship Act, the Domicile Act and the Extradition Act as at 31 July 2017. The book also draws attention to the policy shifts by the South African government in the White Paper on International Migration, the Border Management Act, and the Discussion Paper on the repositioning of the Department of Home Affairs within the security cluster. Immigration Law in South Africa comprises three parts. Part One contextualises migration at an international level and within South Africa. This part discusses the concept of migration in the context of South Africa and on the international stage and how the human rights perspective has developed the notion of migration in South Africa. Part Two examines South African immigration law specifically - whom the state allows to enter and leave, who is considered undesirable or prohibited, permanent residence, and the various types of short-term visas that are offered to foreigners. Part Three considers the penalties that South Africa can impose on foreigners who violate the immigration laws of South Africa: the deportation, detention and extradition laws relating to immigrants in South Africa are examined.
The proper protection of minority shareholders is a cornerstone of any well-developed corporate law system. Pivotal to the minority shareholder's armoury is the derivative action. Section 165 of the South African Companies Act 71 of 2008 introduces the new statutory derivative action, and entrusts the court with a key function as the gatekeeper to the derivative action. The courts have an important filtering function and may disallow applications for derivative actions that are frivolous, vexatious or without merit. The vital judicial discretion to grant or refuse leave to an applicant to bring a derivative action is the crux of the new statutory derivative action. The court is required to exercise its discretion with reference to three important but vague guiding criteria for the grant of leave to institute a derivative action. Thus the courts have been entrusted by the legislature to flesh out the details, the contours, and the practical application of these guiding criteria. This crucially endows the courts with a dominant and decisive role in shaping the effectiveness of this much-needed new remedy. The New Derivative Action under the Companies Act is primarily aimed at developing guidelines for the exercise of the judicial discretion in the field of the new statutory derivative action. It takes into account valuable principles gleaned from other comparable jurisdictions such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. The book also discusses the overlap between the derivative action and the oppression remedy.
Exploring all aspects of domestic, European and international laws and regulation, Banking Law is essential reading for students and practitioners alike. From examining the academic debates, policy considerations and practical influences underpinning the regulations, this text offers you a truly socio-economic and contextual approach to a subject which impacts on the daily lives of people worldwide.
