RE: CONFUSED - PLEASE HELP
You are entitled to certain rights in terms of Section 189 of the Labour Relations Act. This indicates that you must be consulted before any dismissal takes place.
If your boss is preparing to retrench you (dismiss for operational requirements) he has an onus ( a duty) to speak to you beforehand and consult with you with regard to many issues.
Over and above this even if there is a fair retrenchment, you are entitled to full notice pay plus one week's pay per completed year of service.
