What is a ‘company dismissal letter” and what is it meant for? You have been working for your dream organization and have been used to a certain way of running things. Everything seems okay, at least for you, then out of nowhere you receive a company dismissal letter, also known as a letter of termination of contract. You are baffled and can’t explain what it really means. Here is what you really need to understand about it;
A dismissal letter or a termination of contract letter is written by the organization to their employee with an aim of letting them know that they have been released of all their daily duties and that their relationship with the said organization will be null and void starting the date indicated on the letter. Therefore as a result, the employee will not be able to conduct any business /transaction on behalf of the organization.
The dismissal of contract letter normally comes as a last resort after all other disciplinary measures have failed and should be able to clearly explain to the employee the reason behind their dismissal. All necessary employee friendly legal procedures should be followed to avoid unfair termination which could lead to a court battle. As such, it’s important for an employee to know their rights and be fully aware of what to expect on case of a termination.
