Question posted in the General Law category relating to Eastern Cape

Good day,

I recently got a job which i started mid Januaruy 2024. The company that employed me bought 4 franchises of which i was supposed to do accounting for. Now, there is a dispute between the previous owner of those frachasises and the company that employed me which was supposed to take over operation of those franchises. Everything has been put on hold as the matter has been taken to the courts.

My question is now that i am employed, but my employer is not operational. Legally can my employement be terminated or the law will not allow because there is no outcome yet from the courts as to whether my employer will take over the frachises or the previous owner of the franchises will have her buisinesses back.

Please note i left my job for this new job.

Kind regards,
