Question posted in the General Law category relating to Northern Cape

My maternity leave starts on  1 April 2022.  

My HR department gave me an option for my medical premiums to be deducted for the four months which I agreed to. But the document they showed me and one i agreed to was still reflecting the amounts of the previous Medical plan (Remedi Standard). I had changed my options to Remedi classic thus I informed my HR that the document needed to be amended with the new amounts which I should first see and agree to before it could be sent to head office.

The problem is that my HR department gave the go ahead to Head office for the new amounts with me seeing the amended contract and I don't agree to this because the amount is pushing up everything thus making me pay more tax. It reflects as if I'm getting a high salary and I want them to reverse the prededuction because I didn't agree to or see the amended document. 

Please assist.
