FAQ

Generally, upon resignation or dismissal, these are the payments you can expect should you resign:

If an employee has worked 24 hours or more for an employer and no contractual terms are applicable, the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (Act 75 of 1997, as amended) requires minimum notice periods before employment can be terminated in writing.

The Basic Conditions of Employment Act gives us the notice period terms. See below:

According to section 40 of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), it is clear that payments must be made to an employee upon termination of employment, and this includes outstanding leave pay.

The South African Labour Guide mentions, Section 20 (5) (b) of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA) states clearly that "the employer may not require or permit an employee to take annual leave during any period of notice of termination of employment.”

If you fall ill while you are on your annual leave, you will need to visit a doctor and obtain a medical certificate certifying that xxx date to xxx date the employee was medically unfit for work.

Annual leave is accrued means that the number of days to which an employee is entitled to leave starts at zero and increases with the passage of time as the leave cycle progresses.

So at the start of a leave cycle an employee will have zero days leave due to him/her.

According to The South African Labour Guide, an employee is entitled to 21 consecutive days annual leave on full pay in every leave cycle.

Despite the misconception that it is not, yes non-accredited courses are still usefull.

Non-accredited courses are many times completed in a shorter period of time and although not accredited, you still learn valuable knowlegde and skills. You are able to refine your skills and enter the job market with skills that are beneficial.
