Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng

My Husbands company had to close during lockdown, but the employees were paid their salaries in full.  However, the employer is now informing them that 10 days annual leave will be deducted from their leave balances due to COVID.  There was no consultation with employees and also now communication during the Lockdown that this would be the case.

Is this legal even under these circumstances?
