Does the CCMA allow legal representation and would the policy pay?

  • Generally the CCMA does not allow lawyers, since the intention is to keep the process inexpensive and reasonably informal. However on complex matters lawyers might be allowed.
  • Employers are however allowed to bring representatives of employers organisations to represent them (in much the same way that employees are allowed to have a union representative to represent them).
  • The policy will pay for the costs of the Insured’s legal representation.
