In the recent matter, Ndzimande and Others v Didben N.O and Others (2 April 2019), the Labour Court considered the dismissal of three employees who made disparaging statements about their employer on public radio. The Labour Court ultimately upheld the arbitration award of the CCMA, which dismissed the employees.

The decision is important for employees and employers alike.
