My wife and I accepted a work offer from a company in Koppies in the FreeState and moved here from Port Elizabeth. Now 7 motnhs down the line we were called in and told we're fired with 2 hours notice, no hearings, warnings or procedures were followed,and no payment whatsoever including outstanding wages from the previous week. We lodged a case with the CCMA and got a date for the hearing which is 01/11/2012, needless to say they objected against the con-arb. After being fired we were harassed by them on several occasions and 17 days after being fired they show up at our door with R6k in one hand and documents stating that we will not persue the matter any further but here's the thing. On the top of the document it states that we are the employers and they the employees but the signatures at the bottom is in order. We took the money and signed the documents after noting the errors but said nothing about it as we were desperate after being without an income for 17 days.
Can we fight this objection against the con-arb? Thing is we're moving back to Port Elizabeth and cannot afford to come back for the arbitration?
Can give you A LOT more information about this case but it'll take too long to type.
