The Information for Learnership Contracts

learnership regulations: learnership contracts

There must be a written contract of employment between an employer and a learner. Each must have their own copy of the contract available for their reference.

It is important for youth to have contracts in place when accepting a training or job opportunity. This is because a contract serves as a legal agreement between the employee and the employer.

  2. ensure clear communication and understanding,
  3. provide a basis for resolving any disputes that may arise during the employment relationship,
  4. provide a clear path for advancement, raises, and other opportunities for growth within the company.

Report Unfair Learnership Termination or Dismissal to the CCMA

If a youth is suddenly and possibly unfairly terminated from their employment, they should take the following steps:

  1. Review the contract: It is important to review the contract to determine if the termination was in accordance with the terms outlined in the agreement.
  2. File a complaint: If the termination is found to be unfair, then you can file a complaint with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation, and Arbitration (CCMA) within 30 days of the termination.
  3. Attend CCMA hearing: If a complaint is filed with the CCMA, you may be required to attend a hearing, where the CCMA will try to settle with the parties.
  4. Report the employer to the relevant SETA and the DHET.

The process of challenging an unfair termination can be complex and time-consuming and is based on the evidence. Your contract is an important piece of evidence so ensure you have a copy.
