A person was transferred to open a branch in the Cape. Three months later her salary is cut in half and she is told to accept the offer or resign within 24 hours (on email). The employer is using the ploy of "re-structuring" and has stated that employees need to re-apply for their positions, at half their salaries or resign. However, management salaries have not been cut nor have they been "retrenched". Where does the employee go to the CCMA - I would presume in the Cape? Secondly - how valid is the "re-structuring" process? The employer deducts pension and does not pay it over, and is seriously in arrears with PAYE, UIF and SDL. But a really nasty piece of work who enjoys intimidating people and throwing tantrums. Should she go via the CCMA and in the interim look for a Labour Lawyer (remember her salary has just been cut in half)? In addition - the employer decided that her flat would become the overnight accommodation for people going to the Cape on business and moved two single beds into her home. Then sent technicians to go and stay there. She pays the rent and the lease is in her name. She shares with someone and that is how he got the keys. The first she knew about it was when the neighbours phoned her at work and told her there were strange men going in and out of her house!
This guy is priceless!
I have a little HR Experience but feel overwhelmed about where to tell her to start.
