The programme covers all the legal and human aspects of planning and executing retrenchments. Principles made through Industrial Court decisions will be shared in the programme. Some retrenchments were declared not genuine while others were found to be genuine. While the focus is on those who are covered under the Employment Act 1955, the programme also covers those who are outside its scope. The basic principles of genuine retrenchment applies to all employees under the Industrial Relations Act 1967 and in the Industrial Court.
