Clients may choose one of two DVDs to augment the course:

The Jabu Gumede Case which features a disciplinary enquiry into an employee’s alleged falsification of a sick certificate. The shop steward is very aggressive and confrontational in his approach; or

The Zola Zubane Case which features the case of an employee who walks off the job and stays away the following day, resulting in a major client problem. The shop steward displays a less confrontational but nonetheless competent approach when representing the employee.
