Summary Dismissal

What is Summary Dismissal?

A scenario wherein an employee is immediately terminated from work due to behavioral misconduct is called summary dismissal. Under such circumstances, the employee can be terminated without any notice period or notice of payment in lieu. However, it is necessary for the employer to outline the specific reason for summary dismissal in the employee contracts. If it’s not specified, the employee can question the company’s unreasonable termination.
