As the title states.
There is an extreme lack of work for me, to the point where I have done no more than maybe 30 minutes worth of work in 3 days. At first it was just annoying as I like being productive and it's not as if I can keep my self busy at work, so I mostly just sit around reading up on things improving on older sites I've done.
Some things to note about my employer. I'm not allowed to work on any of my own projects, even if it's meant to benefit the company to a degree as idy be able to use it for us later on. Also they have a problem with watching any kind of video, including learning material.
I'm not sure if I should be scared for my job as everyone who works in or close to our department knows that.I don't have work anymore. I've run out of ways to try and seem proactive. And I try to study new things via documents but there's only so much learning you can do in a day.
Also note: I have asked for more work. I am waiting on a lot of things at the moment. Also another colleague had the same issue and indicated it to one of the bosses. They have been retrenched (laid off).
I know this is a temporary thing, but I'm scared bringing it to light will make it seem like a permanent thing and i'lly just be retrenched as well.
Clarification: "Retrenchment is a form of dismissal due to no fault of the employee, it is a process whereby the employer reviews its business needs in order to increase profits or limit losses, which leads to reducing its employees"
