Retrenchments and redundancies and economic downturn go hand in hand. The added burden of the effects of Covid-19 pandemic has forced many employers to look towards staff cuts to save their companies from ruin.
Employers may use sections 189 and 189A of the Labour Relations Act to cut staff costs but, as in all things, there is a right way and the wrong way to go about retrenching employees.
This webinar will focus on the do’s and don’ts of retrenching. With reference to practical examples, employers and employees will learn about their rights and obligations, what is deemed fair and what is frowned upon.
The goal is to equip attendees with the know-how required to participate in a retrenchment exercise with foresight, confidence, and knowledge. The advantage of knowing your rights is too great to miss this webinar.
