Legal connections get connected in labour court thanks to Sabinet

Nov 4th, 2019

Sabinet, a leader in facilitating access to online labour and legal information, offers free Wi-Fi access in all of South Africa’s Labour courts. This convenient service is available to legal practitioners representing labour-related cases.

The free Wi-Fi facilitates easy access to a range of legal resources online – such as up-to-date, reported and unreported labour judgments, Bargaining Council Agreements, labour legislation, CCMA awards and Labour Related Acts.

When this project launched six years ago, over 7000 logins were reported. Sabinet’s aim was to facilitate access to a reliable, fast internet connection to address the need for on-site online research and resources that aide members of the law fraternity in performing their tasks.

In this digital age it is imperative that legal practitioners have reliable access to online legislation and resources in order to carry out their tasks efficiently. Many of the lawyers at the labour courts also make use of the service to provide valuable assistance to their pro bono clients.

Sabinet’s Wi-Fi service is available in most sections of the labour courts including the judges’ chambers, court rooms, library and pro bono office in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

Sabinet has been offering this service through South African Wi-Fi communications specialist, Gconnect – a trusted Wi-Fi brand in the telecommunication space. The team behind holding company, Exmile Technologies (Pty) Ltd, have more than 52 years of combined Wi-Fi services experience.

Free Wi-Fi access from Sabinet, combined with their user-friendly mobile legal app, is a key component of any lawyers’ suitcase. For more information on Sabinet’s range of legal information services, please visit
