Hi there
The CCMA awarded a harsh award to an employee I had to let go.
She was still in her probation period and the award was for 4 months. I accepted the fact that I didn’t follow the right procedures but am unable to settle such a large amount within 14 days. I made contact with the employee and offered to pay her off over 4 month’s however she refused and made it clear that she will embarrass me by sending a sherriff to attach the few items we have in our office.
The hardest part is that I am unable to appeal the commissioners award and have to go to the labour court which will be adding even more costs. Any advise as to what to do?...or am I just left without any choice?

I'm sure the commissioner will consent to your settlement offer rather ask

Don’t appeal the verdict but contact the ccma and see if they can help with a payment plan....

Spend a bit of money on a storage unit that comes with power. Purchase a deep freeze. I think you know the rest.
