One of the worst situations to be in is when one is caught off guard by sudden layoffs. Like several incidents that happened this year in big local organisations. People were taken aback byhow their companies handled the unfortunate cut in headcounts, especially ones who have served the company for a very long time.

Employers are often thrown into a dilemma when facing termination and dismissal issues. Wrong termination and/or dismissal can have great legal consequences. There so, employers are faced with a great difficulty in making decisions and acting swiftly to resolve matters. Nowadays, it has become more complex with employees who are challenging the employers from a HR and legal perspective on termination and dismissal.
