Deductions after resignation.

Unread post by lyndahdube » 09 Oct 2017, 12:48

Good day,

I have a question regarding resignation.

I've resigned from the company I work for effective 15 December 2017. Upon finding out that I am resigning, my employer has requested a recall on studies onto my salary effective end of this month. I would like to know what the legalities around this are. Is my employer allowed to deduct money from my salary and if yes, how much?

I have not given permission to my employer to deduct any monies and the studies that I did were in line with CPD (continuous professional development).

Please assist as I need to know how to reply to the email.

Good day

The employer may not deduct without your consent and even if consented to, the amount deducted may not exceed 25% of the total amount paid out. Approach the Department of Labour to intervene.
