Termination

Termination

Termination means removal of employee from employment by his employer mainly on the following grounds,

-Due to the expiratory of employment contract period between employee and his employer.
-Due to the Ill-health of the employee.

Being terminated for any of the items listed below may constitute wrongful termination:

Discrimination: The employer cannot terminate employment because the employee is a certain race, nationality, religion, sex, age, or in some jurisdictions, sexual orientation.

Retaliation: An employer cannot fire an employee because the employee filed a claim of discrimination or is participating in an investigation for discrimination. In the United States, this “retaliation” is forbidden under civil rights law.

Employee’s Refusal to Commit an Illegal Act: An employer is not permitted to fire an employee because the employee refuses to commit an act that is illegal.

Employer Not Following Own Termination Procedures: Often, the employee handbook or company policy outlines a procedure that must be followed before an employee is terminated. If the employer fires an employee without following this procedure, the employee may have a claim for wrongful termination.
