It has become very clear that COVID-19 has had a major effect on the status of many employees. There are instances of retrenchments without payment, employees simply being told to go home, with variations of: use your annual leave, take unpaid leave.
So advice on labour law rights has become incredibly important. However, many employees simply cannot afford to pay – even more so now that their employment conditions have been reduced – or ended completely.
