It is of important note, to state herein that we’ve had many Attorneys work for us before Sheldon, and without any iota of doubt, he has stood out among the lots. Professionalism in service delivery is a rare attribute among service providers, these days, but in the case of Sheldon, he exhibited this at all times he’s called upon to address any matter on our behalf. Another special attribute I must not fail to mention, is his timeliness in the provision of helpful information to our Management. This was well pronounced during this very difficult period of COVID-19 pandemic. Every information required for us to be in good standing with our employees and the labour law, were not only promptly provided, but he also actively participated in coming up with the right solution to navigating the challenges that came our way during the period.

As a business owner its always harrowing trying to deal with staff and to do so in the correct manner. With all the rules and regulations that apply to business owners, with regard to staff, it certainly can take up a lot of time just trying to manage staff issues! I was fortunate enough to employ Optimum Labour Law to manage all my staff issues which has alleviated me and given back a lot of time. I am confident that when dealing with my staff it is now done professionally and by the law. Sheldon is thorough and he gets the job done whether it be a dismissal, warning or counselling.
I am very happy with Optimum Labour Law!

Optimum Labour Law has worked for Plumbworld and KFT Construction for the past two years and has help both companies to become legally compliant on all of our labour and HR
Requirements. Sheldon has been a huge help in this process to rectify all areas we had overlook and has been instrumental in the new contract negotiations with all our staff.
Thank you Sheldon for this could not have done it without you.
