she does most of the the disciplining

Somehow this doesn't sound quite as kinky as the european version of the story would be.

true story: the Xhosa lady house assistant in East London tells the family (of my future daughter in law) "when Mandela dies it'll be our chance to kill you whites". Are these grounds to discipline her? (wtf!!)

I'm sure Madam is peeved.

But one has to wonder why they are waiting for Madiba to die. It's not like he'll be able to stop them if they started right away.

The moment I hit "Post" I already regretted it! ;)

[Letter-of-the-law mode]If she said “kill you whites”, you can actually have her up on assault charges. If you can also produce independent evidence (witness testimony or a recording), your charges will very probably stick. “Assault” need not entail actual physical violence (that’s called “battery”); a credible threat of harm to one’s wellbeing suffices for it to qualify as assault. There are also provisions in the Labour Relations Act and the Basic Conditions of Employment Act that cover employee misconduct of this kind.[/Letter-of-the-law mode]

Maybe you should remind her that she’s treading on thin ice, legally speaking. If you’ve had trouble with her before, perhaps you should issue a formal warning (if you do, keep a careful record and have her sign an acknowledgement). I know it’ll make things unpleasant for a while but you need to weigh up your priorities in this regard: being intimidated/bullied vs. maintaining an appropriate employer/employee relationship.

Rigil, I was being ironic ;)
Quite frankly Mefiante, these stories often get told for melodramatic effect so I take them with a pinch of salt....it's much like the boerestaat stories of the night of the long knives.
However, it may pay to be somewhat wary of the lunatic fringe ....
