RTRENCHEMNT QUERIES

Posted by: Monica | 7/2/2011
Work at a construction company, 16 yrs. Our leave is only in
December when industry shuts down. Retrenchment are now beginning.

How does it work ? Taxed and UIF deducted from lump total? Leave is that what you would have taken in Easter &  Dec break ? They say I will get 1 day for March public holiday?? Tax directive - what, how,who,when ?

Re: Retrenchment Queries

Tax and UIF are always deducted from total lump sums, however in terms of the severance payment for dismissals for operational requirements there is a once off exemption of the firt thirty thousand rand payment. If you have applied to have this exemption in the past then you cannot get it once again.

The company has to applie for the tax directives.

If you are retrenched you can''t be paid for leave that you don''t have have. The day you leave your current company, they are only allowed to pay you the number of days leave that you have accrued up to that date and not have taken.
