Archive Issues Of Laboratory

Edition 3, 2009
It has been the law for some time that the High Court (“HC”) has jurisdiction over unfair dismissals provided that they are couched as contractual claims. This has been the cause of some consternation. Commentators1 point to the lack of coherence that a dual stream jurisprudence could lead to, warn that the Labour Court‟s remedial powers and special expertise could be usurped and complain that employers and employees should not have to arrange their affairs in a schizophrenic manner, where one set of rules applies when the common law holds sway whilst another does when the Labour Relations Act2 (“LRA”) applies.
