Sabinet, a leader in facilitating access to online labour and legal information, offers free WiFi access in all of SA’s labour courts. This convenient service is available to legal practitioners representing labour-related cases. The free WiFi facilitates easy access to a range of legal resources online, such as up-to-date, reported and unreported labour judgments, bargaining council agreements, labour legislation, CCMA awards and labour-related Acts.

When this project launched six years ago, over 7 000 log-ins were reported. Sabinet’s aim was to facilitate access to a reliable, fast Internet connection to address the need for on-site online research and resources that aid members of the law fraternity in performing their tasks.

In this digital age, it is imperative that legal practitioners have reliable access to online legislation and resources in order to carry out their tasks efficiently. Many of the lawyers at the labour courts also make use of the service to provide valuable assistance to their pro bono clients.

Sabinet’s WiFi service is available in most sections of the labour courts, including the judges' chambers, court rooms, libraries and pro bono offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

Sabinet has been offering this service through South African WiFi communications specialist GConnect, a trusted WiFi brand in the telecommunications space. The team behind holding company Exmile Technologies have more than 52 years of combined WiFi service experience.

Free WiFi access from Sabinet, combined with the company's user-friendly mobile legal app, is a key component of any lawyer’s suitcase. For more information on Sabinet’s range of legal information services, please visit
