Question posted in the General Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal

Hi there. I had COVID-19 and sent my test results through to my employer. According to my understanding, this will fall under sick leave & I will be paid for it however, my employer made a statement of "no work, no pay". I was in a predicament as I need the money for all my bills to be paid but I was told I cannot work from home even though I had the resources. When my manager had convinced my employer to consent me from working from home, I immediately started & I was asked to produce a time sheet. I produced a time sheet of all the days I worked as well as irregular hours because of the environment of the employment. This past Friday was Salary day & my employer did not pay me for working from home or the fact that I had produced my COVID-19 test result. Kindly assist me as to what do I do further?
