Title
Signing away retrenchments
Description
Signing a voluntary retrenchment agreement essentially amounts to a waiver of an employee’s rights in terms of the Labour Relations Act No. 66 of 1995 (“LRA”). An employee who validly agrees to the termination of his employment contract cannot be said to have been ‘dismissed’ and can therefore not refer an unfair dismissal dispute to the CCMA or the Labour Court.
