Recently one of my employees posted a number of defamatory comments via her various social media platforms regarding some of her colleagues. I have already addressed the matter with her individually, but would like to prevent issues like this cropping up in the future and also protect my business. Most of my employees are on various social media sites and my business also has various social media accounts. Is there anything I can do?
I own a mid-sized construction company and the end of my financial year is fast approaching. My auditor has advised me to make any BEE expenditure I wish to make before the end of my financial year. I’ve been following BEE developments in the construction industry and have noted with concern that the the deadline for submission of a new Construction Industry BEE Charter has been missed. Now I’m unsure as to which codes I must use for my BEE planning and any BEE expenditure I still need to make before the end of my financial year.
I am considering buying property in a sectional title scheme. The estate agent mentioned that a normal levy will be payable every month but the trustees of the body corporate of the scheme have the authority to determine a further special levy from time to time. I was aware of the normal monthly sectional title levy, but what is a special levy?
At our recent work function for company staff at a private outside venue, a few of the staff members had too much to drink and became loud, inappropriate and even offensive, to the point where a number of the other staff members left the function early. Afterwards a number of staff complained to me about the conduct of these staff members. How do I manage this and avoid similar situations arising at the next function?
