The Online Advocate Site

The South Afican labour environment has become increasingly complex and the cost of securing reliable specialised labour assistance has increased dramatically. The South African labour laws are undoubtedly complex and presents a spesialised division of law. Quality of service and affordability present the main challenges to businesses in accessing labour law assistance. The digital environment offers an ideal opportunity to overcome the divide between the growing need for reliable specialised assistance and the upward spiraling cost to obtain such assistance.


‘The ONLINE ADVOCATE Site’ was first created by Willie Rossouw to bridge the ever increasing divide between legal cost and the need for reliable specialised assistance.
