Retrenchments & Restructuring

Weathering economic perils through restructuring and retrenchments. COVID 19; Lockdowns (nationally and internationally) and a Ratings Downgrade has forced most companies to rethink how they do business.

Restructuring, lay-offs, short time and retrenchments are the new imperative as Companies try to survive. Labour Laws are perceived as a rigid hinderance to flexibility.

Come join us for a short webinar (2 hours) on the topic of Restructuring and Retrenchment in uncertain times.

I will look to address a number of misnomers and shed light on what can be a legal quagmire.

  • What does it mean to restructure?
  • What grounds can we use to retrench?
  • What is the correct procedure to follow?
  • What is voluntary retrenchment and when can it be applied?
  • Is there difference between redundancy and retrenchment?
  • What is severance pay; how is it calculated and when must it paid?
  • How much information must be disclosed during the process?
  • Must we involve the Trade Unions and to what extent?
  • How does Business Rescue or Insolvency affect the process and the rights of the employees?
