Terminations of Employment and Summary Dismissals

It is important for employers to handle both terminations of employment and summary dismissals correctly from the outset. If terminations of employment or summary dismissals are handled in the wrong way, it will often cause employers additional costs and may also damage their image.

Terminations of employment may be necessary as companies have to adapt to economic trends and general developments in their particular lines of business. Employers may also be compelled to terminate contracts of employment if employees do not live up to expectations.

If employees are disloyal to their employer or act inappropriately in some other way, summary dismissal may be relevant in certain cases.

We are extremely experienced at handling cases pertaining both to the termination of employment and the summary dismissal of employees. In addition, we have extensive experience in advising on collective dismissals, which are regulated by special rules.
