So are we securing our jobs base on forced vaccinating ? ❤️❤️👏🏽👏🏽🤸🏽‍♂️ That whole judgement is shocking! It is beyond me why would Commissioner Matshala use a Judge’s memorandum to his colleagues, as a base to dismiss someone. That thing is definitely going on review, should be overturned… Excellent news! Assuming she had no legitimate medical reason to not get it of course. 👏

Welcome to the new dawn where a healthy person can be declared medically incapacitated to work and it's just a normal day When these institutions become a rule unto themselves, then..... CCMA done the good job some people ba ignorant Back to the colonial times, democracy out of the window I have a problem with media and how it structure its summary of new, i had a look at the above mentioned case, and vaccination is not only the cause of the dismissal, there are other charges 🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️

Where are the lawyers that we asking us to retweet their pinned tweets about such cases? Boepakitso When all this scam is over, we should start suing these companies & government...

As a mother of two kids I have battled alot with my financial state to the point of begging from friends just to survive,until I started Bitcoin trading with the help of _AMBREYMARCUS1 I made a successful withdrawal of R 200,000 with the help of _AMBREYMARCUS1 . I just want to thank you KATHERINE_4174 for being there for me Madam. Lately, i saw that my profit has been credited back to my wallet account. I was curious and it's also exciting.. You are the true Madam🙏🙏🙏!!! As tragic as the situation is, what is the point of other people risking their lives to retrieve the remains of people longdead?

What was CCMA reasons, we need to know, so we can counter attack those invalid reasons CCMA is just like HR, they don't care about what's in the best interest of employee. You might fancy this 5 minute read. That is a policy of the south african government, It is captured. afriforum here is a chance to shine.

Mokgala mankapana This needs to be challenged This is shocking… personal medical status is not grounds for dismissal!!!! How can SABC report and not expose this because its not legal in this country. How can the ccma do this, so who do the working class turn to the ccma is clearly corrupt. The ANC RAPED OUR COUNTRY.

When you're Rome do what Rome do.what can we say .BCS most of company do that. D company's policy may b d problem here. Firstly, d Min of Labour isued directives which clearly sets out steps to b followed. Did employer reasonably acommodate d employee? Although not privy to case, some aspects must be probed. My take, she has reasonable prospects of review.

Shame on the CCMA! Clearly a pitiful investigation of scientific facts, and a painful lack of insight into human rights and freedoms that are enshrined in what is clearly a defunct constitution. Let her go to court Haibo haibo not to vaccinate , leads one to loose job no ways it count be true , the unemployment rate will go up

In Rome you do as the Romans do? Mandates are being dropped in many countries. The company has to prove that an unvaccinated person puts a vaccinated person at risk. Which is clearly not the case. The vaccinated are protected by the vaccine, so who is at risk? If anything, she is. And she accepts the risk.

We are in a serious problem here, a very serious one. The person must consider EFF Labour desk. Can't they she /they burn it for firing her,Fire 🔥🔥 is all what restore order🤷🏾‍♂️ Hallelujah!!
