No Labour In Vain

No Labour In Vain (NLIV) brings together business, relationship management, human resources and law expertise in a complete package. NLIV was the brainchild of Raymond Hauptfleisch, who realised that by combining his expertise in these fields he could offer employers and employees an end-to-end employer/employee relationship solution.

Raymond’s formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Theology (Hons) from Rhodes University, a BCom specialising in Human Resources Management from the Management College of Southern Africa, an LLB and Postgraduate Certificate in Education from Unisa.

Raymond’s passion for better understanding the relationship between an employer and employee has led him to pursuing his master’s degree in labour law, as well as a postgraduate certificate in commercial law, both through UNISA.

His 15 years of experience and diverse expertise stem from the formal positions he held over the years including: teacher at private and public schools, legal advisor for a high profile insurer, practicing attorney, public speaker, facilitator and mediator.

When starting NLIV, Raymond realised that the strength of this new venture would not lie in his expertise alone and put together a team of professionals that work for him and with him. NLIV is now an active member of the South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW) and an accredited member of the AHI Employer’s Organisation.
