The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration  (CCMA) has found power utility Eskom guilty of unfair labour practice for suspending the head of legal compliance, Suzanne Daniels.

Eskom has also been ordered to lift Daniels’ suspension with immediate effect and pay her a salary equivalent to five months.

Daniels was suspended just days after she instructed the law firm, Bowman Gilffillan, to issue letters of demand to McKinsey & Co and Gupta-linked Trillian for payments the companies had allegedly received without valid contracts. This was in relation to the state-capture inquiry at Eskom.

Daniels says she is looking forward to her return to the power utility.

“The charges related entirely to my report to the minister. The board decisions, the actions of individuals also what the various legal and forensic investigations found, I collated all of that and also recommended what needed to be done going forward. I look forward to going back, I believe that I still have value to add to Eskom.”
