Jail time for cartel conduct?

The amendments to the Competition Act, 1998, which introduce criminal liability for cartel conduct, came into effect on 1 May 2016.

Start-Up ideas are everywhere – even in Aged Healthcare

Every loving son ages with the same question on his mind: 'What are we going to do about my mom?' This question follows from some lessons I learned from an interview with Jason Calacanis, an American internet entrepreneur, angel investor, author and blogger and Seth Sternberg, CEO of Honor which is a business in the USA focused on private Home Care for the elderly.

To what Degree?

On a daily basis we deal with graduates who are not able to find work despite impressive sounding qualifications. Some qualifications sound very glamorous, but only return value after a person has reached a Master or Doctorate Level.

Internet of Things (IoT) security concerns may hamper growth

Businesses are, for a large part, uninformed and risk averse towards securing IoT. Enterprise, industrial and commercial IoT is a sticking point for business, particularly in South Africa, where boards of directors and senior executives are not yet knowledgeable about the benefits. This causes them to be exceptionally averse to risk, but this is changing as younger and more informed ‘tech-savvy’ executives are being appointed to boards.

Counter terrorist financing measures

In the past 20 years, threats and incidents of terrorism have grabbed global headlines and urged nations to step up laws against not only the act but also the financing of terrorist activities.

Employees who happen to also be BBBEE Beneficiaries, sometimes misunderstand that they are ordinary employee’s and do not have a favoured, preferred or somehow entitled status, in-comparison with other employee’s in the company.

PODCAST | Insights into the CCMA

Nerine Kahn spent 10 years fixing the CCMA. What a decade of achievement! A superb interview conducted with a straight shooter. In 2006 Nerine Kahn moved from the Department of Labour to the CCMA leaving a LEGACY PAR EXCELLENCE in her wake when she left in 2016. Essential listening for insight into the CCMA.

CPD quality assurance deception!

As one of the original members of the SAQA commission which worked on the Professional Body framework and regulations, I am now astounded by how existing and aspirant Professional Bodies, but more so, pre-existing Statutory Bodies, are consciously misinterpreting what Continuous Professional Development(CPD) is and how it needs to be quality assured.

THE FUTURE OF JOBS? | …or unemployment and the basic global...

Is South Africa headed down a road of jobless growth where a capital-intensive economy is incompatible with a labour-intensive need? According to an International Labour Organisation (ILO) report reviewed in Forbes Magazine, 11 August 2017, there are about 71 million unemployed 15 to 24-year-olds around the globe, many of them facing long-term unemployment. This is close to a historic peak of 13%.
