RE: RETRENCHMENT PROCEDURE
It sounds like the rentrenchment procedure was severly truncated and that they haven't followed Section 189 of the labour Relations Act properly. In essence, it is suggested that you challenge this procedure and you also challenge the merits. You need to get everyone together to attest two affidavits that your boss had informed you on the 12th June that you shouldn't panic and that you won't be affected. Once you have this, you may approach the CCMA for a conciliation. Thereafter you will have to approach the Labour Court for an unfair retrenchment if you don't settle at the CCMA. You can approach attorneys to help you with the referral to the Labour Court.
