Good day

Retrenchment package is calculated at the salary immediately prior to the dismissal. In other words, the last/latest salary will be the one used to calculate the retrenchment amount.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
