Discussion on Termination:
The termination based on poor performance is the right of Employer, but as per the UAE Law, it should be based on valid grounds. If both parties are agreed to terminate the Contract, then it is acceptable. If Contract gets expired, then it becomes a normal expiry, which is also accepted by Law. If the termination is based on the terms mentioned in the Employment Agreement, then it is also accepted.
The Employment contract can not be terminated with the demise of the Employer, but if the employee meets with his destiny then it becomes expired though his dues and the outstanding amount has to be paid by the employer. If a worker is found in fraudulent activity, crime then employment contract can also be terminated. The employer needs to have proof of this, otherwise, any termination without proof or valid ground will be considered by Law as wrongful termination. For a valid and lawful termination procedure should be as Employer has to serve the warning Letters first, then terminate the worker. Immediate Termination, especially without a reason is considered as Wrongful Termination by the Law. The Notice Period mentioned in the Employment Contract should be considered and followed by both parties, as per the requirement. Sometimes, both parties are agreed that work will not work on Notice Period, and the employer will not pay him for the notice period. Such adjustments can also be made with mutual consent but should not be breaching Labour Law UAE and the Employment Contract. In Short, Termination should be based on valid grounds as per the defined rules of Labour Law, otherwise, the worker may ask for Compensations.
