Labour Relations Act, 1995 (Act No. 66 of 1995)

Rules for the Conduct of Proceedings in the Labour Court

21. Representation of parties

 

 

1) A representative who acts on behalf of any party in any proceedings, must notify the registrar and all other parties, advising them of the following particulars:
a) The representative's name;
b) the postal address and place of employment or business; and
c) if a fax number and telephone number are available, those numbers.

 

2) Any party who terminates a representative's authority to act and then acts in person or appoints another representative, must give notice to the registrar and all other parties concerned of that termination, and of the appointment of any other representative, and include the representative's particulars, as referred to in subrule (1).

 

3) On receipt of a notice in terms of subrule (1) or (2), the address of the representative or the party, as the case may be, will become the address for notices to and for service on that party of all documents in the proceedings, but any notice duly sent or any service duly effected elsewhere before receipt of that notice will, notwithstanding that change, for all purposes be valid, unless the court orders otherwise.

 

4)
a) A representative in any proceedings who ceases to act for a party must deliver a notice to that effect to that party and all other parties concerned.
b) A notice delivered in terms of paragraph (a) must state the names and addresses of the parties that are notified.
c) After receipt of a notice referred to in paragraph (a), the address of the party formerly represented becomes the address for notices to and for service on that party of all documents in the proceedings, unless a new address is furnished for that purpose.
