You are fired!
A summary dismissal is very drastic and a last resort to allow the employer to dismiss an employee immediately in case of an urgent reason. Theft, fraud, threats and violence come to mind when asked for a reason, but refusal of work without good reason can also lead to summary dismissal.
An employer, as the stronger party, is expected to handle summary dismissal with due diligence and exercise due diligence towards an employee based on good employment practice.
In the case of summary dismissal, the relationship between the requirement of promptness and the duty of care taken must be considered.
Proper preparation can ensure that the employer is not caught off guard by the court. Taking timely legal advice is one of them. ACG International is specialised and experienced in assisting both employers and employees in issues of (dismissal) grounds. It is important for both employers and employees that these matters are and remain on the right track.
Mind the gap!
Despite the efforts of policy makers, the pay gap (the difference between men’s and women’s wages) remains a major problem to be addressed. It can seem overwhelming and often employers do not know exactly where and how to start. Such issues can cause problems and create a tense working atmosphere. ACG International can help employers create transparency.

Employment within the European Union: do you know your social security rights?
European Union employees, who seek employment in another EU country, often underestimate the complexity of the EU social security system. Once you change the country of your residence, temporarily (even for five days) or forever, you and your dependents can only be covered by one social insurance system. However, the system of which country will it be?
