Dismissal remains the most thorough and comprehensive work available on a problem that confronts employers, lawyers, judges and arbitrators every working day - when is it fair to terminate the relationship with employees, for whatever reason this regrettable step may be deemed necessary? This work deals with all the circumstances in which dismissals arise and are challenged - from dismissals for misconduct and incapacity, through retrenchments, automatically unfair dismissals, dismissals of protected and unprotected strikers, to the procedures required before such dismissals can lawfully be effected and challenged. Written in the clear and readable style for which the author has become acclaimed, the exposition of each principle is illustrated with examples drawn from the case law. This third edition adds many judgments handed down since the second edition was published four years ago, and incorporates judgments law and statutory amendments that have been handed down or enacted since then. Dismissal forms a volume in a quartet by the author, and should where necessary be read with its companion volumes - Employment Rights, Collective Labour Law and Labour Litigation & Dispute Resolution.
Dr Mark Bussin has consistently contributed to the development of a host of human resource managers in the remuneration field in Africa via his corporate and consulting experience, wise counsel, writings, and hundreds of lectures, TV and radio interviews. He has developed a generation of remuneration experts, helped define the field of practice, and made a significant contribution to the national level of excellence in the field.
How we remunerate employees reflects the dynamics of the market and context in which we operate. It aligns at all times to the strategic direction and specific value drivers of the businesses within which our organisation operates. Remuneration plays a critical role in attracting, motivating and retaining high-performing individuals. Remuneration also reinforces, encourages and promotes superior performance.
Through variable remuneration linked to value drivers, superior performance is recognised and rewarded, while poor performance and under-achievement are coached and managed. Remuneration is never a stand-alone management process, but is rather fully integrated into other management processes, such as the performance management process, and the overall Human Resources policies.

When planning a new office, designers and their clients are faced with many challenges and questions. They have to think about practical issues such as spatial needs, proximity relations, IT infrastructure and furniture, but also more strategic issues such as occupancy costs, effectiveness of the working environment, and environmental impact. One of the most fundamental questions during the briefing stage concerns the office concept: what kind of office design best suits the working processes and culture of the organisation? Should all employees have their own workstation or are they going to share desks? Would enclosed offices or a more open working environment be better? Perhaps a solution that holds the middle is best? How many and what kind of meeting spaces do we need? Planning Office Spaces is a clear, accessible book written to help solve these problems, looking at each of these issues in turn and showing the alternatives on offer and what the advantages and disadvantages are. It is ideally suited for both office designers and their clients to help them reach the best, most suitable office design while ensuring that they have considered all of the issues that need to be addressed.
Operational Excellence is achieved when all employees in your organization can see the flow of value to your customers and can make adjustments to that flow before it breaks down. Operational Excellence in Your Office: A Guide to Achieving Autonomous Value Stream Flow with Lean Techniques presents nine time-tested guidelines for designing business process flow that enable Operational Excellence in the office. Each chapter describes one guideline by using text, illustrations, and practical examples to provide a comprehensive understanding of why creating flow in the office is essential and how to achieve it. Accounting for the reality that most office employees are required to work on many different projects throughout the day, this book details a step-by-step methodology for leveraging traditional value stream flow to establish Operational Excellence in an office environment. In addition, it describes a more advanced form of flow called "self-healing" flow-in which employees are capable of identifying and fixing problems with the flow without requiring management intervention. Explaining how to achieve Operational Excellence and self-healing flow with the nine guidelines, the book also introduces new concepts such as part-time continuous flow processing cells, workflow cycles, takt capability, integration events, pitch in the office, and ways to tell whether your office is on time. With this book, you will be able to take the knowledge provided and immediately apply it by following the step-by-step checklists included at the end of each chapter. In addition to the lists of action items for implementing each guideline, the book includes "acid tests" you can use to determine if you have implemented each guideline correctly. When finished, you will have designed an end-to-end flow for the services in your office as well as visual systems to help employees distinguish normal flow from abnormal flow so they can fix flow problems on their own, before they negatively impact your customers.

Equal opportunity in the workplace is thought to be the direct legacy of the civil rights and feminist movements and the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. Yet, as Frank Dobbin demonstrates, corporate personnel experts--not Congress or the courts--were the ones who determined what equal opportunity meant in practice, designing changes in how employers hire, promote, and fire workers, and ultimately defining what discrimination is, and is not, in the American imagination.
Dobbin shows how Congress and the courts merely endorsed programs devised by corporate personnel. He traces how the first measures were adopted by military contractors worried that the Kennedy administration would cancel their contracts if they didn't take "affirmative action" to end discrimination. These measures built on existing personnel programs, many designed to prevent bias against unionists. Dobbin follows the changes in the law as personnel experts invented one wave after another of equal opportunity programs. He examines how corporate personnel formalized hiring and promotion practices in the 1970s to eradicate bias by managers; how in the 1980s they answered Ronald Reagan's threat to end affirmative action by recasting their efforts as diversity-management programs; and how the growing presence of women in the newly named human resources profession has contributed to a focus on sexual harassment and work/life issues.
"Inventing Equal Opportunity" reveals how the personnel profession devised--and ultimately transformed--our understanding of discrimination.

Visual and multimedia digital technologies are transforming the practice of law: how lawyers construct and argue their cases, present evidence to juries, and communicate with each other. They are also changing how law is disseminated throughout and used by the general public. What are these technologies, how are they used and perceived in the courtroom and in wider culture, and how do they affect legal decision making?
In this comprehensive survey and analysis of how new visual technologies are transforming both the practice and culture of American law, Neal Feigenson and Christina Spiesel explain how, when, and why legal practice moved from a largely words-only environment to one more dependent on and driven by images, and how rapidly developing technologies have further accelerated this change. They discuss older visual technologies, such as videotape evidence, and then current and future uses of visual and multimedia digital technologies, including trial presentation software and interactive multimedia. They also describe how law itself is going online, in the form of virtual courts, cyberjuries, and more, and explore the implications of law's movement to computer screens. Throughout Law on Display, the authors illustrate their analysis with examples from a wide range of actual trials.
