Two questions on which I would appreciate some opions regarding the legality ito the Labour Law, please:
1. The company I am working for has given a whole section within the company two months notice of retrenchment as they are 'restructuring' and have decided to move the work offshore to India although the company continues to do business at the same scale in the RSA. My retrenched colleagues now are having to train the workers from India here at our offices to be able to do the work when they return to India. Although the company wont admit it outright it is actually a decision based upon cheap labour that is available abroad. How does this action tie in with our Labour Laws?
2. The company also say, as part of the restructuring process, that they are downgrading my post and I can either accept the downgraded position, at a lower salary, and do exactly the same work as currently being done, or alternatively be retrenched. Once again, how does this tie in with our labour laws?
