AS A BUSINESS OWNER, YOU’RE THE GO-TO PLACE FOR SO MANY.
BUT WHO’S YOUR GO-TO PLACE?
A safe harbour to anchor your business…
Founded in 1998 the (SA)UEO is a trusted, DEL-registered employers’ organisation with a mandate to provide businesses with representation at business and labour forums – such as the Labour Court, CCMA and bargaining councils, backed by the relevant expert industrial relations (IR), human resources (HR) and labour law expertise.
Over the years, the organisation has however evolved into way more than that – to not only become a safe harbour for its members to anchor at – but also be a go-to place to continuously help you survive the business ebbs and ride the tides. We invite you to join our business family today.
A Song to honour every business leader, owner or enabler!
Representation at Labour Forums
Firstly, many business leaders are not aware that a lawyer or labour law practitioner is generally not allowed at labour-related proceedings or negotiations at the CCMA or bargaining councils, unless they are official organisers (members) of a DEL-registered employers’ organisation.
Compliance with labour laws
Secondly, members of (SA)UEO constantly receive up-to-date information pertaining to the latest labour legislation that impact their businesses. When one considers the fact that just in 2019, ±74% of referrals to the CCMA were due to non-compliance with our labour laws, this is a factor that cannot be underestimated.
Enhanced chances of positive outcomes for disputes
Thirdly, the majority of negative outcomes at labour forums such as the CCMA, are due to proceedings that were not handled correctly, both procedurally and substantially. To this end, the (SA)UEO has ≥200 registered organisers who are strategically positioned nationwide, to offer our members such expert assistance. These organisers comprise a multidisciplinary range of officials who specialise in industrial relations, labour law, and human resources.
Ongoing compliance with an everchanging regulatory landscape
Finally, as a business owner, you have to constantly steer your business ship through an ever-changing environment, which is chancing even faster than ever, whilst avoiding social, economic, political and legal rocks that could literally sink you in an instant.
The impact of the latest legislation that deals with the national COVID-19 lockdown stipulations and compliance with the subsequent new occupational health and safety (OHS) regulations on business, is a classic example of that.
The (SA)UEO has a dedicated team of researchers and specialists that constantly scan the business environment to identify any new potential issues and collectively design solutions for them.
