A kid I know, got conned into signing a contract for a job.
Terms of employment - work hrs 6am to 4pm 10 hrs but paid for 8hrs only. Hours are compulsory and lunch and tea times are frowned upon.Daily overtime is a norm.
No overtime pay at all - Standby 24/7/365 (he is the only electrician for 4 plants , another thing he wasn't told)He however does get a R100.00 a day standby allowance.Yes R100.00 and once again no callout or overtime pay.
No bonus or 13th cheque or any other form of incentive
And , if he resigns within 2 years he has to repay the Personnell agent's placement fee
This is a very large company , but, the director/owner is a bit of a weirdo
Think he has an escape anywhere? I have a copy of the contract if anyone wants to see it
