    TV Licence prices - South Africa vs the rest of the World

    So give the SABC tons of money upfront and tell them to be responsible and use it over the next 10 years. Something tells me that this might not be the best idea.

    Routers: TP-LINK C60 vs Asus RT-AC1200 vs ???

    Hi all I’ve got excellent speeds during a speed test but there are lots of times where everything stops and nothing is transferred between the device and router at all even though I’ve got good signal. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s my router. I'm looking for something in the +/-...

    Notice Period Pay - Labour Law

    We've told her multiple times over the last year and proposed various options, but never a formal warning. That's why I'm saying we've accommodated her for this and many other things. So I don't think immediate dismissal would apply here.

    Notice Period Pay - Labour Law

    Okay to clarify, it's not about 4 weeks notice. The question is, she would normally have to work for 4 weeks during her notice. CCMA says that I fired her yesterday now she doesn't have to work for the 4 weeks, I just have to pay her out.

    Notice Period Pay - Labour Law

    After being really, really kind to her for 6 years and doing everything to accommodate her circumstances, I feel betrayed and really hurt that she went to the CCMA. For this reason I don't care if it takes her the whole day to sweep 1 room, I don't want to pay her for nothing.
