Normally I'd think about the value of staying, but I don't like what you say about losing the pay for January and December, etc. That sounds like, though they were very understanding before, they might not be as keen to "stand by you" from now on ? Q makes sense about contacting the CCMA and checking out your rights. Depending on the technicalities of what would be required at the present job, etc., would the new employers be understandign if you started a little later ? And they surely can't expect you to pay back for sick leave all in one lump some, rather than gradually ? And I'm pretty sure that a specific amount of sick leave is required by law, and not optional or repayable. Good luck with your decision-making !
