EMPLOYEES OBLIGED TO DISCLOSE BREACHES OF THE COMPETITION ACT

In a legal alert sent out by DLA Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr, the spotlight falls on the duty of employees to disclose potential breaches of the Competitions Act to their employer.  With companies increasingly being taken to task by the Competition Commission and Tribunal in respect of contraventions of the Competition Act which may involve collusion (price-fixing, market allocation and bid rigging) and abuses of market power, the question arises as to the duty of employees to disclose potential breaches of the Act to their employer.  Is an employee under obligation, at risk of victimisation or sanction, to advise his/her employer not as the wrongdoing of colleagues or breaches of the Act ?   Most definitely, according to Johan Botes, Director of Employment Law at DLA Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr as several local legal cases have shown that employees are, under common law, obliged to act in good faith in all their dealings with their employer.  To find out more contact the employment team at Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr at jhb@dlacdh.com or visit www.cliffedekkerhofmeyr.com
