I’m unemployed because my fixed-term contract was not renewed by my employer. I referred a dispute to the CCMA but was unsuccessful there. My attorney does feel there is merits in taking the matter on review to the Labour Court, but has warned me that it may be expensive and there is no guarantee that even if I win my case, that my legal costs will be paid by the employer. Is this really correct? I always thought that the unsuccessful party must pay the successful party’s costs?
