Employers fight compensation claims

Employers fight compensation claims
Published: 06 April 2018
Employers have resolved to partner Wintertons Legal Practitioners to fight cases of compensation demands by workers fired for misconduct.

Section 12 of the Labour Amendment Act Number 5 of 2015 entitles workers who have been dismissed to receive compensation, which includes notice pay.

Speaking at an Employers' Confederation of Zimbabwe (Emcoz) meeting yesterday, Wintertons lawyer and head of the law firm's labour department, Ruvimbo Matsika said employers cannot compensate a worker who has been dismissed over misconduct because there is no notice given in such instances.

Workers are compensated when a termination notice has been issued to them by the employer according to the Labour Act, she said.

She said the clause that determines dismissals and that which determines retrenchment were different.
