This publication is both a legal text for practitioners, with reference to legal precedents, and a handbook for the person in the street who wants to use the CCMA. It is published in a pocket-size for quick reference and easy use in CCMA hearings.
Anton Steenkamp, Judge of the Labour Court
“The commentary is written in an accessible style and in plain language. Thankfully, it is not clothed in the obtuse jargon that sometimes seems to be designed for and used by lawyers. Because of that, it will be of great use to legal practitioners who appear in the CCMA; but also, and primarily, for the primary users of that forum, such as trade unionists, human resources practitioners and employees…. I recommend it highly.”
Published in a pocket-size for quick reference and easy use in CCMA hearings, 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.
In addition to the complete Rules and commentary on these, the book also includes:
- A practical guide for unfair dismissal claims
- Codes of Good Practice
- Guidelines on Misconduct Arbitrations Contents
- Full index
- Table of Cases
- Table of Statutes

“This book will be an invaluable resource to all those who, in one way or another, find themselves engaged in proceedings before that body. The book provides useful background and an explanation to each of the Rules that apply in the CCMA, leaving the reader in no doubt as to how and when they should be applied. The text incorporates the very latest amendments to the CCMA Rules. “
André van Niekerk, labour attorney and author
“It serves as a handy source to users of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (‘the CCMA’), whether legal practitioners, trade-union officials, industrial-relations practitioners or lay persons. ...Commissioners may also find the commentary useful. The book has been written in a user-friendly way.“
SA Mercantile Law Journal
“… just the right addition to the library of any CCMA practitioner, including Commissioners. It is compact, easy to read, and gives useful explanations on how to read, understand and apply the rules.”
