Nasreen Jajbhay is a Johannesburg-based attorney whose law firm, Jajbhay Attorneys, provides holistic employment law services, while Jajbhay herself also works part-time as a commissioner and panellist at the Bargaining Council. The impetus to start her own firm was the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Finding herself underemployed and her abilities and knowledge underutilised, she opened her sole practice. Like most entrepreneurs, she recognises the importance of obstacles in making us strong and determined enough to reach beyond the low-hanging fruit and instead aim for greater goals. Through her work, she seeks to ensure justice in employment matters is guaranteed and accessible to all, and to ensure disputes are thoroughly and fairly resolved. Additionally, she is passionate about ensuring women are fairly treated and empowered in the workplace. In pursuit of these aims, her firm offers contract and policy drafting, managing workplace enquiries, training, facilitating and litigation. — Anita Makgetla
