The most common method of terminating a
contract of employment is by the delivery of a written notice of termination of the contract on the opposite party. Where a notice of termination is served, the contract
automatically terminates at the expiration of the period of the notice of termination. Either party could equally elect to pay compensation in lieu of the employee working for the employer during the period of the notice of termination.

For termination, you get paid a little change. Because termination comes from downsizing and so on.
For dismissal, no. You might even have to return money because dismissal comes from fraud or going against company policy that resulted in loss of money.

As a corporation executive I must tell you the truth. When you fire a staff you must pay him or her off if you really want to please God and humanity.

In a country where human rights work very well, you dare not lay off a staff and refuse to pay him or her. Haba! That's inhuman.

To answer your question I will ask you. Does government pay sacked workers? The answer is YES. You pay them till their last day in office or for the full month. Thank me later

Ordinarily, a person who works for any period of time must be Paid his his salary. If he was sacked at the end of the month, he must be paid his salary in full. But where he was sacked before the end of the month, his salary will be pro rated for the number of days he actually worked.

Assuming there was an employment letter issued to the staff at the time of recruitment, the terms of the contract of employment will determine if he is paid or not.

In most cases, the employer aside paying the salary for the month is required to pay one month salary in lieu of notice, in cases where the staff was not notified before the sack.

Your story is sketchy and u may need to give more details if you want better advice.

Cheers!

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

The labour law in Nigeria states that if you earn monthly, you are entitled to a month notice or payment for one month in lieu of notice.

As an employee too, you have to give ur employer one month notice or pay your employer one month in lieu of notice.

Ideally, most employement letters spell this out.

It depends.

Should be paid up until the last hour worked before termination.

Some may even be paid for the two years.

If you have worked beyond your probation period prior to your employment termination, then you are entitled to your terminal package. You also have the right to demand for it via a formal letter

There are procedure to follow bf any dismal,they are:written or oral warning leading to a queries that demanded for explanation frm d offender,if mgt of d firm are not satisfy they wil set up a panel to investigate d matter and at d end if d offender guity of the offence,therefore labour law count it as termination of appointment with a cause,d offender wil not be paid but if after all d investigation he was cleared and organisation are facing with problem beyond their control such as overstaffing,low profit couple with high cost etc they can downsize.When this happen labour law count it as termination of appointment without a cause.REMEDYcheesy person has entitlement of 3months salary plus payment for d numbers of days he or she worked for bf he or she was sacked.It has happened to me in 2009 and i was compensated.

If you're terminated, you should be paid.

If you're dismissed, you get nothing.

If you have worked for 20 days, you deserve to be paid unless you are being sacked on financial ground.

That is why an employee should be very conversant with the handbook of his place of work/company as it will be properly stated therein.
