"Retrenchment: Zimbabwean Domestic Worker"
I have recently been retrenched. I have sold my house and am going to have to retrench my Zimbabwean domestic worker. I have a few questions:
1. Was I supposed to pay UIF for her? I have read that it should be from the date that she received her green bar-coded SA Id Book. Is this true?
2. Do I have to provide her a severance package from the date she received her SA ID Book or from the start of her employment with me?
3. If she worked for me for 1 day a week, I calculate her daily rate times the number of years she was with me?
4. If she takes her leave from the 16th December, can I give her notice now and then should I pay her for November and December plus her severance package?
