Public Wi-Fi is convenient, and it allows us to save on data costs and work on the go, as these networks are usually in public places such as airports, coffee shops and shopping malls. But, no matter the convenience, we recommend caution if you connect to public networks as firstly, you do not have any knowledge of who created the public network and for what (potentially sinister reason),  and secondly, it is impossible to know who else or how many other people are connected to the same network

An employer having a social media policy should not restrict employees from using social media but rather be a tool to equip employees on how to use social media in the most beneficial manner and to ensure that anything that is said  on social media platforms, whether or not it is about the employer and even if it is after office hours – does not bring the employer into disrepute.

Virtual Commissioning of Documents

By |2021-04-06T11:10:44+01:00September 30th, 2020|Commercial Law, ICT Law|

When we have any documentation commissioned, we essentially swear, by providing proper identification, before someone who has the authority to administer an oath (such as a police official, an attorney, a charted accountant, etc.), that we understand the content of the documentation and find it binding on our conscience. The commissioner confirms this by placing his/her signature and stamp. Usually this is a process done face to face but with these unprecedented times of living in lockdown and trying to reduce the spread of infection, it may be wise to consider alternative means of commissioning.
