Introduction: The Retirement and Re-Employment Act and its Practical Applications
The Retirement Age Act has been amended to the Retirement and Re-Employment Act which was effected on 1 January 2012. With this amendment, there is no change in the statutory retirement age of 62 but a statutory re-employment till the age of 65 is instituted.
With this new statutory re-employment law, can an employer dismiss an employee with or without notice prior to the employee reaching 62, whether statutory or common law employee?
What is the impact and effect of the new Retirement and Re-Employment Act for the employer, the employee or a HR practitioner who will have to implement this new labour law in your organisation? Are there any criteria for re-employment and must the terms and conditions for re-employment remain the same as prior? Would the application of the re-employment terms and conditions be the same for unionised and non-unionised companies?
At the end of this workshop, participants can be assured that they will be more competent in their understanding of the Retirement and Re-employment Act and its applications.
A competent HR practitioner must have the skills and knowledge in the following:
1. Background and Purpose of Retirement and Re-employment Act (RRA)
2. Catergories of employees covered under the RRA
3. Eligibility Criteria for Re-employment
4. Re-employment Practices
