Every one of us has at times (especially when it’s time for performance appraisal) feared for our job. At the back of our minds, we know that the possibility that we may be laid off cannot be ruled out. Maybe our employer thinks we are not pulling our weight. Maybe our manager thinks we are slacking off work. But we still forge ahead and do our best. Employment is ‘at will’, it is usually not guaranteed. That is why, you may be horrified to learn that employers can fire you any time they want for any reason, no matter how flimsy. Fortunately, there are laws that can prevent the unjust laying off of employees. If you feel like you have been fired for an outrageous or unhumanitarian reason, then you can seek the help of the law and if you can prove that you are a victim of wrongful dismissal, then you can win a settlement.
Wrongful dismissal is a legal term that denotes the act of illegal termination of a person’s employment. It can be traumatizing for a person. It deals a blow to his/her confidence. What is even worse is that it leaves the person in between jobs. And if the victim were unable to find employment right away, it would lead to a loss of livelihood. If the person is the sole breadwinner of the family or has dependants, then the ramifications of wrongful dismissal affect them as well.
When will you know for sure that you have been fired unjustly and it’s time to take action against your employers? Here are a few examples of wrongful dismissal and instances where your human rights are violated which entitles you to seek redressal-
