SA ‘labour guru’ to talk in city

2010-10-12 00:00

EXPRESS Employment Professionals Pietermaritzburg will once again host a talk by labour expert Dr Andrew Levy in the city.

Levy, who is a labour economist, has been described as South Africa’s “labour guru”.

His company, Andrew Levy Incorporated (ALI), and Express have formed an alliance to conduct internal training and updates and offer a professional consultancy service.

Carolyn Diaz of Express told The Witness yesterday that although the employment and recruitment industry has suffered during the recession, the company is seeing signs of an upswing in the market.

“Business continues to move forward cautiously.

“All businesses do have operational needs and cannot function without their key people.

“Placing contingency staff [sick leave, maternity leave, etc.] as well as ensuring that a company has flexibility in its workforce is essential to maintaining production,” Diaz added.

Levy’s talk will be held at the Stay Easy Hotel at Pietermaritzburg’s Liberty Midlands Mall, on Thursday, October 21.

It will focus on a number of topical issues, notably the recent public sector strike and its implications for future wage negotiations, as well as the impact of several proposed labour legislation amendments.

This will be Levy’s third talk in the city.

Levy is a senior arbitrator, author, lecturer and host of several radio talk shows.

He will provide updates on recent cases handled by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration.

The cost is R150 per person.
