1 Question about JUST CAUSE? on Thu Aug 31, 2017 12:43 pm


Arresto Menor
Hi Sirs,

Would like to confirm if the following is just cause for dismissal.

1. Serious misconduct - Evidence from a personal groupchat in facebook involving group of friends. (containing green jokes about another employee). no complain from the employee or anybody else was made to the management.

2. willful breach by the employee of the trust reposed in him by his employer - in the same group chat the employees are asking if the people that are served with SCN was at the office, the employee simply stated that yes they are and they are in the office of the manager. (is this considered as a breach of trust even though there is no order of non-disclosure of such things and the information is something that can be freely seen by all employees at the office.)

3. Selective dismissal - out of 15 people with both managers and r&F and supervisors they only terminated the supervisor even though the cases of the 14 others also involved forgery other than the serious misconduct and breach of trust while the supervisor didn't.

hoping for some clarity.

Reclusion Perpetua
3. that is the company's prerogative. if they choose tonforgive some and not the others. recourse for the employee is to prove there is ill motive on part of the employer. eg employee has personal problems with the supervisor that is why he is being singled out
