well it depends on the reason behind the sack, if d reason is on genuine ground then u will be paid according to how it is stated in your offer letter but if the reason is of dismissed then not only you won't be paid but you might even end up in police net.

Your employment contract will state this. As someone said, it depends on the reason given. In other cases, you WILL be the one paying the company smiley

Sack (fired)is different from retrenchment.

Sack is usually punitive while retrenchment is management's decision/induced.

The gravity of your offense will determine if you will be paid after been sacked.

It depends like when Mourinho was sacked and Louis Van Gaal who is about to throw in the towel.

Where is lalasticlala sef?

+ sack is sack, you quit by means of contractual terms
+ sack is when you are told to go by handing over to a delegate.
+ you could be arrested if circumstance is criminal in nature.
+ your full and final settlement could be pro-rata based.
+ you could refund as a condition for sack.
+ poor performance and insurbodination are tantamount to sack without pay.
+ remember how GEJ and his cabinet was sacked, how Fayose was sacked the first time and Wike has been sacked by court of appeal undecided

NO

Its like saying do expelled student from a tertiary institution get certificate as a graduate, the answer is NO because such student has been found guilty by rules holding the two parties.

Do u understand or I explain further?

Sacked!! Only a nice company will pay u for that month. It also depend on the terms and conditions of the work.
Re: When People Are Sacked From Their Jobs, Do They Get Paid? by SmartMugu: 7:12pm On Dec 28, 2015
It depends on the country and their labor laws. In the US, as a full time employee for a firm, even if you get fired or laid off, you are entitled to file for unemployment benefits. Your previous employer will be held accountable to pay you some stipends until you get another job - usually within a 3 to 4 month window. While receiving the unemployment checks, you are also able to request to be trained on a skill or certification that can help you get a job faster, the cost is on your previous employer as well.

Of course, it will depend on the basis of your job loss and the type of company you work for. A large company would rather pay you the unemployment checks than spend more on lawyers to fight your unemployment claim, a small or cheap company would often look for loopholes in the laws to avoid making the payment. That's why some of them try to limit your working hours to less than 40 hours a week. You're not technically considered a full time employee if you worked 39 hours or less a week, so you're not entitled to benefits reserved for full-time 40hr employees, including the unemployment benefits to save them on costs. Crazy right?

Not sure if it's the same in Nigeria or other countries.

Depends on your contract and reason for termination.

As a permanent member of staff, you should be entitled to be paid for duration of your notice period stipulated in your contract+ untaken holidays

If you get terminated for gross misconduct, you may not be entitled to anything..

Most big companies will pay entitlements. But then again it's Nigeria we're talking about...
