We employed an employee during April 2016, and unfortunately had to retrench him with others by means of a section 189A, February 2017.

On 28 November 2017 he only then referred an dispute to the CCMA, complaining about his severance pay and overtime not paid. He did not file any condonation application.

Is this referral not defective , and can I use this as an defense? The case is tomorrow and im only learning about ccma matter now!

Kind Regards
