Written Notice of Retrenchment

Written Notice of Retrenchment

If you plan on firing an employee, you have to go through a process of consultation with the employee. This is in terms of Section 189(3) of the Labour Relations Act. If the process of firing an employee is not done correctly they have rights to appeal the retrenchment at the CCMA.  The first step is giving the employee written notice of the proposed retrenchment. The law is very specific about what needs to be included in this written notice and compliance is critical.  You can find more about the process of compliant retrenchment here.
