In general, an employer bringing end to an employment of an employee who has been continuously working more than three months without a legitimate reason is called wrongful dismissal.
In general, an employer makes some significant changes to the fundamentals of the employment, such as, work location, salary, work hours, authority and position without the employee’s actual or implied consent.
The relationship between an employer and employee is a contract even without a written form of contract. It is important for both the employers and employees to be aware of terms, conditions and enforcement of such contracts as they should fall within the frame work of employment laws governing them.
Bad Faith Discharge
Bad faith discharge means an employer dismissing an employee for the purpose of defeating some employee benefits that are rightfully due if the employee had to continue his employment. In essence, the termination of employment is motivated by some hidden reason other than the one that is stated.
