Introduction
During this unprecedented pandemic and economic crisis, many companies are contemplating serious cost cutting measures to sustain their operations and manage business.
One of the most difficult cost cutting measures include the downsizing of employee headcount such as retrenchment, temporary lay-off, mutual separation or voluntary separation. These measures involve the termination of employment of an employee due to a situation of redundancy arising from the economic crises.
This program is designed as a guide for companies, especially the Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) to understand the legal aspects of security of tenure, redundancy, the Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) Rule, differences between VSS, MSS and the retrenchment process.
