The managing director of Petzetakis Africa (Pty) Ltd recently found herself in an unenviable position when she was instructed by the group CEO and chairman of the board summarily to dismiss two employees without holding disciplinary hearings, or face dismissal. Her refusal to comply with the instructions resulted in the company dismissing her. The dismissal was found to be automatically unfair by the Labour Court in Michelle Harding v Petzetakis Africa (Pty) Ltd in September 2011.
