Find out who you must consult with when retrenching 


When retrenching, you need to consult with the people the retrenchment will affect:

The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service explains that you need to consult in the form of this hierarchy.

#1: If you have a collective agreement and it says you need to consult with any person (or body, such as a trade union) in terms of the agreement, then you must speak to this person first.

#2: If you have a workplace forum and the retrenchments will affect members of this forum, you must consult with them.

#3: If your employees belong to a union and the retrenchments will affect them, you must consult with the union.

#4: If none of the first three points apply to you, you must directly consult with the employees the retrenchment will affect.

Just bear in mind that you don't need to consult with all of the people in the list above. You must only consult with the person on the list that applies to you.

Knowing who to consult with when retrenching will help ensure you follow the correct procedure and avoid labour disputes. To find out what you must consult about, check out the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service.
