rehiring for a retrenched position

Our company recently retrenched a few staff members (about 5 months ago), and since then have re-hired new people to fill the exact same job, and they miscalucated the workload and actually need the same amount of staff as before. Surely this cant be legal?

re: Rehiring for a retrenched position

This is not correct. People who have been retrenched should have the first opportunity to have the new positions. This can be challenged.

Depends on what the people who were retrenched''s agreement said. This however sounds like firing staff for reasons other than operational etc. The retrenched staff should go to CCMA and make a case
