This is a contractual right where if an employer dismisses an employee, acting in breach of his contractual or statutory obligations by failing to give the employee any notice, the employer is liable to the employee for damages caused by wrongful dismissal.

Damages will be assessed in terms of what the employee would have received if they were dismissed in breach of contract or with less than the statutory minimum period of notice and if they have suffered loss as a result.

One of the most common breaches is when an employer fails to give the proper notice period to the employee or an employee is dismissed without notice. An employer’s failure to follow a contractual disciplinary procedure can also lead to a case of wrongful dismissal. There are circumstances however, where an employer can justify the dismissal of an employee without giving notice if the particular employee has committed a serious breach of contract such as theft.
