When Can an Employer Refuse to Pay a Severance Package?
ENSafrica, March 2020

  The economic climate in which many South African firms operate has meant that dismissals for operational requirements have become an inescapable concern. However are emplyees always entitled to severance pay? Section 41(1) of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, 1997 provides that a retrenched employee is entitled to severance pay at least equal to one week’s remuneration for every year of completed service with the employer. This obligation to pay severance pay is tempered by the provisions of section 41(4). A retrenched employee is not entitled to severance pay if that employee unreasonably refuses an offer of alternative employment...

The Coronavirus is in South Africa Limiting Your Risk
ENSafrica, March 2020

It has been said that false information about COVID-19 (otherwise known as the Coronavirus) is spreading faster than the virus itself. Understandably, this has created global hysteria, but what do we really know about the Coronavirus? The virus is a highly transmissible respiratory disease, with a mortality rate which WHO estimated as recently as 3 March 2020 at around 3.4%...
