Termination of employment by the employer contrary to the employee’s contract of employment.
Wrongful Dismissal is the termination of employment by an employer contrary to the employee’s contract of employment.
Dismissal may be wrongful because the grounds given are not justified, or the procedure laid down by the contract of employment has not been followed.
In law, wrongful dismissal, also known as wrongful termination or wrongful discharge, is a situation in which an employee’s contract of employment has been terminated by the employer, where the termination breaches one or more terms of the contract of employment, or a statute provision or rule in employment law.
