Fired from your Job

Last updated on Jun 21, 2022

If your employer fires you from the job, it may either be according to the notice period or any other terms given in your contract. Your employer may terminate your job if:

Employment-Related Disputes

  • Your performance is not good.
  • You were involved in any criminal activities such as insider trading.
  • You have breached any HR policies or you have violated any code of conduct etc.
  • You have committed an act of sexual harassment at your workplace which has been proved.

Violation of Terms of your Contract

If you violate any terms of your contracts such as non-compete, non-disclosure, non- solicitation clauses, etc. then you may be fired by your employer.

Fired Without Any Specific Reason

Even if you have not violated any terms of your contract or if you are not involved in any disputes, the decision to either fire you or let you continue in the job lies with your employer. This is usually referred to as ‘termination without cause’.
