Re: rules and procedure of retrenchment and termination

Some staffs are terminated by the co (reason: re-structuring & downsizing) and they are covered by Industrial Relation Act, then now co just give them 2months notice of termination (according to their appointment letter). Is it proper procedure? or need extra pay? how procedure is follow the rules of retrenchment?

The staff concerned should report their cases to the Industrial Relations Department or the Labour Department. Meanwhile read up the Employment (Termination and Layoff Benefits) Regulations using for details of payments.

However, the staff is covered by IR act. The termiantion and layoff benefit is not included into the IR act, right?

No, termination benefits are not mentioned in IR Act but the IRD may help to resolve the problems between the parties.
