Termination of employment / Dismissal
The rights, entitlements and obligation of employers and employees in relation to the termination of the relationship of employment gives rise to significant complex issues. Both employers and employees should have regard to all aspects of the termination provisions and obtain expert advice in circumstances giving rise to such disputes.
The Employment Appeals Tribunal has been set up specifically to deal with employment disputes upon termination and claimants may also have recourse to the Civil Courts.
