With Legal&Tax you're not alone

The recent floods in KwaZulu Natal have been devastating. Our well wishes go out to those that have been affected - With Legal&Tax you and your families are not alone. If you need emergency medical assistance or professional counselling, ourTrauma Assist benefit is available to you. We are the most resilient nation and I truly believe that we have the courage to rebuild a stronger province and country together, as companions.

1 May is Workers’ Day, which serves both as a celebration of workers’ rights and as a reminder of the role that labour organisations played in the fight against Apartheid. During the month of May we will be sharing insightful content to help you better understand your rights and responsibilities related to labour matters.

In the latest edition of Legal&You, Head of Legal Helpline services, Michael Visser helps us understand incapacity, negligence and misconduct, and unpacks how difficult issues in the workplace could lead to disciplinary action. Understanding how these different infringements are handled will help you stay on top of your job.

Losing a loved one is incredibly difficult, and beyond the grief, the administrative burden makes it even harder. I share my personal experience in dealing with the admin of frozen bank accounts of deceased family members.

Dr. Avron Urison, the CEO of our HealthCare plan provides us with healthy habits to keep our immune system strong as we approach Winter.

Finally our Debt Manager, Tshepo Moloi gives us valuable insights and proactive steps to follow when experiencing a sudden loss of income.

Our purpose is to be your lifelong companion, and we hope that you find these articles helpful. If you have been forwarded this newsletter, you can click here to sign up and receive future editions.
