Summary Dismissal

What is Summary Dismissal ?

‘Summary Dismissal’ refers to the immediate firing of an employee due to their inappropriate behaviour. Generally, summary dismissal occurs in cases where the employees have performed some behaviour which can be classified as gross misconduct.

Some of the most common examples of gross misconduct that would lead to summary dismissal would be physical violence against another employee, turning up for work under the influence of drugs or alcohol, poaching client relationships for competition, stealing company properties or data.

In the case of summary dismissals, the employee need not serve any notice period as the company does not wish to be associated with that individual anymore.
