Either the employee or the employer can decide to terminate a contract of employment. Employees may terminate their contract by resigning from the employer, and an employer may terminate the contract by dismissing the employee.
Employee termination templates are pre-designed documents that provide guidance and structure to HR professionals and managers when and employee leaves an organisation, whether by dismissal, or by resignation. These templates typically include a range of legally required and recommended components, such as the reason for termination, the effective date of termination, and any severance pay or benefits owed to the employee.
It is important to note that the specific components and format of these templates may vary depending on the laws and regulations in your jurisdiction and the terms of the employee's contract.
It is always recommended to obtain legal advice before terminating an employee's contract.
