Our expert says:
A retrenchment package is normally calculated on the minimum as laid down by the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, i.e. one week's pay per completed year of service. However, many of the institutions pay more than the minimum and it is recommended that you go and read your letter of appointment and the policies of that particular institution. It is also useful to find out what they have paid in the previous exercise of retrenchments.
