Disciplinary Rules of Evidence
13 July @ 09h00 - 10h30
What are the basic rules of evidence? How are they applied internally during a disciplinary hearing and again at the CCMA? These are important questions because the final result and ultimately the fairness of the dismissal will depend on the evidence that was presented. Even if the employer representative knows how to present evidence, cross-examine witnesses and argue the employer’s case, it will be lost if he does not have a basic understanding of what the law says about evidence.

The POPI Act Unpacked
14 July @ 09h00 - 10h30
Depending on the seriousness of the breach, the POPI Act makes provision for fines of up to R10 million and a jail sentence of up to 10 years.

School safety is necessary to support the academic success of our learners. All too often we hear in the media reports of horrific accidents resulting in the injury or worse still the death of a child.

Diversity in Schools
25 July @ 14h30 - 16h00
So often it is assumed that since the dawn of our democracy, teachers should simply be able to fit in with what is now a changed landscape within their classrooms. While race and ethnicity are always at the forefront of any conversation regarding diversity there are so many more factors to take into consideration.
This webinar focuses on equipping the teacher to not only embrace the diversity within a classroom but encourage dialogue and communication in this regard.
26 July @ 14h30 - 16h00
A growing number of people are quitting their jobs as the Covid-19 pandemic winds down. This is due to a variety of reasons but the most commonly stated is ‘toxic workplace culture’, with compensation and limited growth opportunity proving to be more moderate predictors of attrition. Examples of a toxic work environment have included:- Lack of respect from the company and/or colleagues, not feeling safe at work during the pandemic, pandemic induced difficulties and lack of a healthy work-life balance.
