Record number of complaints to CCMA

10 Jun 2009

Job losses and staff fears are boiling over with record numbers of complaints to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration. In April, the CCMA received 11 560 new cases with 83% citing unfair dismissal. Management and skills-training organisation BizTech's Liza van Wyk says globally companies are reviewing their budgets, staff counts and cutting costs where they can. Some however don't follow correct procedures when restructuring or laying off employees and this results in many costly hours at the CCMA and or in negotiations with a labour lawyer.
