LEGAL SENSE (Hint 40)
by ANSLAM C. AGIM, ESQ
“Compensation Available To A Servant (Employee) Upon Wrongful Termination of His/Her Employment by the Master (Employer)”
Since a master has the right to hire and fire his employees at any time with or without reason, the only remedy available to an employee whose employment is wrongfully terminated, that is, terminated contrary to the terms of the employment is compensation in damages. See, CHUKS V. COMP-GEN., N.P.S (2018) ALL FWLR (PT. 944) PAGE 737 @ P. 773, PARAS D – E.
An example of such damages is payment of salary in lieu of notice to the servant, if the master terminated the employment without giving requisite notice of termination of employment to the servant.
