TSHILILO Mudau and Babalo Skosazana from Katlehong, Ekurhuleni said the company they worked for made them sign a three-year contract.
However, they said they were not given notice when their employer terminated their contracts.
They reported the matter to the CCMA and the company was found guilty.
An award was given in favour of the former employees but the company refused to pay them.
WHAT I DID
I spoke to SCORPION LEGAL PROTECTION SERVICES
According to the Labour Guide, an arbitration award is final and binding.
In terms of the Labour Relations Act, an award can only be enforced as if it were a court order when it has been certified by the director of the CCMA.
If an employer refuses to comply with the award, the employee must go back to the CCMA and complete an LRA 7.18 form.
A copy of the award must be attached to the form.
There are no time limits for this process.
