Hi,

We have an employee who has been on long hospitalisation leave. After calculation, his hospitalisation leave entitlement is up to early September. Due to his long absence, we are forced to hire another new employee and now his position has become redundant. The company has decided to terminate him, with proper notice.

Can we issue a retrenchment letter (with notice period) to him now - during his hospitalisation leave? Or we have to wait until his hospitalisation leave is exhausted to issue a the letter?

Thank you.

Not now, wait until after hospitalisation and see what the medical report says about his medical conditions. Then you may decide.
