What is Wrongful Dismissal?
The relationship between an employee and an employer is a type of contract which sets out how much notice the employer is supposed to give the employee before terminating him/her from the job. The employer’s decision to dismiss an employee must be lawful. Wrongful dismissal is a situation where an employer doesn’t provide appropriate notice of termination to the employee or a fair payment instead of the notice.
As per the law, notice is measured in two different ways. Employees may be entitled to either statutory notice or reasonable notice.
It is considered as wrongful dismissal when an employee is terminated because of the following:
Employee’s refusal to commit an illegal act
Employer doesn’t follow the company’s own termination procedures
When an employee is terminated without a cause and the employer refuses to pay the required compensation.
When an employer inaptly alleges cause and fails to pay any compensation.
When an employer alters the fundamental terms and conditions of employment by making the work environment intolerable and dismisses an employee.
