Biography: Author: Labour Watch Newsletter Managing Editor: Labour Law for Managers Co-Author: Labour Bulletin If you’re serious about staying out of the CCMA and making sure you stick to the ever-changing labour laws, I hope Taryn Strugnell is the first name you think of. Why? Because she networks with the top labour, HR and employment equity specialists in the industry every day. She gets all the inside information on what’s happening with labour law changes and makes sure you’re the first to know what’s happening in the world of labour laws. Taryn writes to more than 34 000 readers of the Labour Bulletin three times a week. Simplifying complicated labour laws to help you, the employer, stay on the right side of the Department of Labour and the CCMA! From CCMA cases, dismissals, right down to issues with leave and rogue employees, Taryn will make sure you have what you need to deal with every employee problem. Legally. Her sole purpose is to consult with her clients, giving them tips, tools and case law studies to make sure you’re in the loop with labour law changes and every day employee problems you might encounter. She does this as the author of the Labour Watch Newsletter, Managing Editor of the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Services and one of the authors of the Labour Bulletin. She has also co-authored and compiled dozens of reports and products to help employers and managers discipline employees and follow the letter of the law. And because of all of this, and her access to the best of the best in the labour and HR realm, she really should be the first name that pops into mind when dealing with employee and labour problems.
