Scholtz v CCMA (Utilitas) (C675/2014) [2015] ZALCCT 45 (25 June 2015) per Steenkamp J.

Acting in terms of s 158(1)(g) of the LRA the Labour Court refused to review and set aside a settlement agreement entered into by an employee and her employer after the first day of the arbitration hearing.  The panellist ‘sailed close to the wind’ when making some ‘off the record’ remarks about the possible outcome but had not exercised any undue influence on the employee to settle.  This was so for a number of reasons, but especially because she was legally represented throughout.
