Pretorius v G4S Secure Solutions (SA) (Pty) Ltd (JR2498/13) [2015] ZALCJHB 414 (24 November 2015) per Steenkamp J.

The Labour Court reviewed and set aside an award.  Steenkamp J applied the ‘reasonableness’ test as the commissioner had assumed jurisdiction but made an unreasonable award concerning an alleged unfair labour practice.  The dispute related to conduct concerning an extra payment and allowance coupled with a placement to another location.  This clearly concerned a ‘benefit’ and in terms of s 186(2)(a) of the LRA the CCMA did have jurisdiction and the matter was remitted to the CCMA for a fresh hearing to enable a fresh award to be made.
