MIND THE ‘GAP’ OF LESS THAN ONE YEAR

Did you know that, in terms of Section 84 of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), previous employment with the same employer is taken into account when calculating an employee’s length of service, if the break between the 2 periods is less than 1 year.

This becomes important when an employer determines an employee’s entitlement to leave or any payment to be made in terms of the BCEA.
