What our clients say

We are proud to work in partnership with our clients and appreciate feedback. Below is a selection of comments we have received:

“MalaMala Game Reserve has been in eco-tourism for almost 50 years and for much of this time the employment of labour in the hospitality sector was uncomplicated. 1994 saw a substantial change in labour laws in the hospitality sector in South Africa followed shortly thereafter by the replacement of ‘paternalistic employment practices’ with union membership. The days of running one’s labour force without expertise came to an immediate end. Simultaneous with this transition was the introduction to MalaMala of Justine Del Monte a Cape Town based attorney who specialises in all matters labour. She has continued to advise MalaMala ever since and with much success. Three unions over this period, a seven month strike in 2008/2009 and numerous hearings and interdicts have been handled with skill and experience by Justine and her team. Inasmuch as her experience has benefitted MalaMala, what is as important to a functioning HR department is the accessibility of Management to Justine and her team. Justine is contactable, responds to communications timeously and has a happy disposition. MalaMala is delighted to be associated with Justine Del Monte and Associates.”

– David Evans, MalaMala Game Reserve
