1 retrenched/laid-off/re-hire inquiry on Mon Feb 18, 2013 3:03 pm


Arresto Menor

I would like to inquire about a situation that I'm having right now, I was laid-off by our employer. They gave my separation pay that with accordance with the law.

However, I was contacted by HR Department and asking me to return to work (re-hire) but they offer me a consultancy contract to do what I'm doing as a regular employee.

They said that they need to wait for 60days more to resume my tenureship and my position as regular employee, and within that 60days they settling me as a consultant.

My query is, is it legal? or they do a work-around to me for something else that will jeopardize my rights?

Please advise.

imo, if they fired you and then tried to re-hire you as a consultant, then there was illegal dismissal because there was no valid retrenchment or redundancy in the first place.

Hi attyLLL,

I've just emailed you same day as my post above, thanks for replying here.

What will I do now, I've signed the contract already and no disclaimer stipulated on the contract, so meaning to say.. the contract that I've signed will be a proof to them that they dismiised me illegaly?

Thanks again.
