re: Unfair Retrenchment
An employer cannot by law merely cut your salary. Further more it looks like the retrenchment is absolutely done incorrectly. You are right, there must be consultation and there must be written notification. You are entitled to go to the CCMA and it is suggested that you get a letter from them telling them that your employer has accused you of not being at work when you were advised that you could go to the CCMA. Your rights are intact and you can refer the matter to the CCMA by filling in a form LRA 7.11
