In this edition of Legal&You we have prepared articles based on the calls we are receiving for advice and assistance. We cover issues like your rights to leave and bonuses, what to do if you have a criminal record, and how to utilise the CCMA when you are dealing with unfair work situations.

We also have some practical steps on budgeting for the festive season in order to avoid debt in the new year.

Finally, we explain the importance of having sufficient cover for the costs of a funeral, and how to try cope with the passing of a parent.

Remember that with Legal&Tax you’re not alone.
