Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the South African government has implemented a 21-day lockdown. It is vital for employers to be properly informed on what their options are during the lockdown and what the implications are of the lockdown on their business and employees. When it comes to the financial situation of businesses and what can be done in terms of the employees, employers have options including: Forced lay-off Short-time working Short-time working is when the employees working hours are reduced; however, they are still employed. This was an option before the 21-day lockdown was announced; however, unless the business operates in one of the essential industries or if the employee can work remotely, it is no longer an option. Annual leave An option that many employers seem to be opting for is to grant employees paid leave for the number of leave days they have available.
