unfair dismissal at work
the employer has stopped me from working saying there is no enough work for me he will call when the business is back again, it was a short notice, I was given a notice on friday when I was knocking off that effective from Monday i’m stopping work… but in the mean time the work i was doing was being taken somewhere to an outsource, so the question would be if the work is not there for me why are they taking the job elsewhere.I filed a claim with CCMA the first date I was not notified the was an error with my numbers on their systems so I had to appeal and I was given another date to appear and the employer now claims that I absconded work hence the dismissal and again he claims that he has been calling me but he couldnt reach me that was in the arbitration meeting we had and I gave my side of the story.I feel the employer didnt follow proper procedures in the whole process, so just recently I received an sms saying I will get an ward in favour of the employer. So my question is what does that mean? Kindly advice further what legal steps can I take going forwards
Dear Boitumelo M, from whom did you receive the sms? I suggest you wait for the ruling and if it is in favour of the employer show the sms to the Commissioner and then demand a review or an appeal on that basis that the matter was not dealt with as prescribed by the law. If the ruling is in your favour then the issues are resolved.
