Hi There

I work in a company with regional offices, we have a 16.1 & 16.2 for our South Africa operations. Can various department managers ,in the regions, resposible for employees in their division sign off appointment letters pertaining to divisional requirements or would all appointments be done by the 16.1 or 16.2.

Thanks

This function could be delegated by the 16(1) to the 16(2). May I suggest that you appoint the managers as 8(2)(i) appointees.

Good evening Tyrone. The 16(2) may yes, if the 16(1) delegated that duty to them.
I like to specify in the 16(2)'s appointment letter the following; you as a 16(2) may / may not deligate this to a next level, as a requirment from the 16(1)to the 16(2).

With regards to Health and Safety Plans ....

Is it only the 16.2 that can legally sign the plan?
