Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng
Firstly,let me say that the company I am working for has been sold and we were not informed about this we only found by people saying around,while our employer had to set a meeting and inform us! After that the company was busy withdrawing our UIF money which we did not even get a cent from that money,and we were busy working when lock-down started..
So now our company tells us that if we get an offer from the company that brought us, they are going to take 50% of our provident fund while they did not even give us our UIF money!
So my question is which feather steps should I take if the situation is like this?
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
Well, the owners of the company are allowed to sell the company to a third party. You can't stop them from doing that. But, if the business is sold, the employees are "sold" with the business. i.e. the employees continue to work for the new owner.
I think that you all (the employees) need to group together and see a labour lawyer urgently to find out if the company is doing things legally or not, because they are not allowed to take your provident fund or your UIF money.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
