    In South Africa, a new mobile app has been launched to provide small businesses with labour-related guidance and support.

    The free-to-use Labour Advice app has been introduced by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) and Business Unity South Africa (BUSA), and it is an extension of the CCMA/BUSA Labour Advice web tool for small businesses.

    Available on the Apple app store and Google Play, it offers a variety of employment-law resources, aiming to ‘facilitate and support the NDP objectives of decent work, economic growth, employment creation and enabling small businesses to manage workplace relations effectively in order to contribute towards labour stability as well as a productive workforce’, according to BUSA.

    The app provides access to a repository of resources, including but not limited to employment contract templates; procedural guidance on fair disciplinary and incapacity procedures; CCMA information sheets; and effective and compliant management of COVID-19 in the workplace.
