Are you having to consider retrenchments in 2023?

South African Engineers and Founders Association

13 January 2023

The metal and engineering industry is now under more pressure than ever before, following the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent lockdown.  Coupled with severe loadshedding and the extension of a Main Agreement that is unaffordable to many companies, this means that short-time, lay-offs and even retrenchments may need to be considered as means of survival. 

Legislation regulating these processes requires that specific procedures be adhered to.  These legal requirements can often prove daunting to employers, particularly those who have never implemented short-time, lay-offs or retrenchments before or who have not had to for some time.

The South African Engineers’ and Founders’ Association, is running a one-day workshop on 26 January 2023 to guide employers through the legislative requirements of the Labour Relations Act and other applicable laws.
