I was given another notification yesterday of possible retrenchment stating that they are not using the LIFO because sales is the only team affected. The ceo and service delivery manager are husband and wife and if they used LIFO they would have to get rid of their son first who was hired after me. They said they chose me because I am a medium term investment and the others are short term meaning that they are service delivery and the company will be able to use them to invoice customes quickly.their son is not however part of the delivery team.

Then I was offered a voluntary package based on the fact that I will agree to a mutual separation and not sue the company with the CCMA.

Their son was hired after me, I believe this is why they dont want to follow LIFO, I have not been given official retrenchment notification yet but have been advised that my last day will be this coming Friday
