How does it work…

  • The Industrial Relations needs of every prospective client are different and various factors such as the nature and size of the business, industry or sector within which the business operates and number of employees employed by the business, needs to be evaluated in order to provide each prospective client with a cost effective service offering. A prospective client can contact Strata-g and request an obligation free consultation.
  • Following the consultation held, Strata-g will submit a formal proposal to the prospective client for consideration.
  • Upon accepting the proposal, the client will be presented with a Service Level Agreement (SLA) for signature, which will govern the relationship between Strata-g and the Client.
  • The SLA will commence with effect as from the date agreed upon and shall remain effective for a period of 12 (twelve) months.
  • Upon receipt of the signed SLA, Strata-g shall process an invoice for the payment of the monthly retainer fee.
  • The monthly retainer payable by the Client to Strata-G shall be due and payable in advance via electronic transfer on or before the last day of every month.

Should the Client owe Strata -G any monies for additional services rendered over and above the normal retainer fee or any monies in respect of disbursements, such monies will be payable immediately upon receipt of an invoice for same.
  • Strata-G shall honour its obligations in terms of the SLA, whilst ensuring clients are treated fairly and professionally at every point of contact. Clients will be provided with a breakdown of all services rendered within a particular month on a monthly basis.
