i)         a legal practitioner; or

ii)         an  individual  entitled  to  represent  the  party  at  conciliation proceedings in terms of sub-rule (1)(a).

(c)       If the dispute being arbitrated is about the fairness of a dismissal and a party has alleged that the reason for the dismissal relates to the employee’s conduct or capacity, a party is not entitled to be represented by a legal practitioner in the proceedings unless -

i)         the commissioner and all the other parties consent;

ii)         the commissioner concludes that it is unreasonable to expect a party to deal with the dispute without legal representation, after considering -

a)     the nature of the questions of law raised by the dispute ;

d)     the comparative ability of the opposing parties or their representatives to deal with the dispute.

(2)       If the party to the dispute objects to the representation of another party to the dispute or the commissioner suspects that the representative of a party does not qualify in terms of this Rule, the commissioner must determine the issue.

(3)       The commissioner may call upon the representative to establish why the representative should be permitted to appear in terms of this Rule.

5)         Despite the provisions of  sub-rule (1),  a commissioner  may exclude  any person who is representing a party in any proceedings on the basis that they are a member of the same employers’ organization as an employer party, or a member of an employers’ organization that is a party to proceedings, if the commissioner, after enquiring into the matter and considering relevant representations, believes that  –

(a)        the representative joined the employer’s organization for the purpose of representing parties in the Commission; or

(b)        the representative’s participation in the dispute resolution process –

(i)     would be contrary to the purpose of the rule which is to promote inexpensive and expeditious dispute resolution in a manner that is equitable to all parties;
