WHAT ARE THE RULES & REGULATIONS REGARDING DISMISSALS DURING LOCKDOWN?


Employers are not precluded from dismissing employees during the national lockdown, provided that such dismissals are implemented in terms of the LRA. In this regard, the LRA provides that a dismissal must be for a fair reason (misconduct, incapacity or operational requirements and effected in accordance with a fair procedure). A guideline on what is a fair procedure is set out in the relevant code of good practice issued in the LRA and is often incorporated in the employer's disciplinary code and procedure.
