Dismissal is the termination of an employee’s contract of employment. In the Italian legal system there are essentially two types of dismissal:

  • Dismissal for just cause, or justified reasons, based on the employee’s conduct;
  • Dismissal for justified objective reasons and collective dismissal due to a reduction of the activity or an internal reorganisation of the firm.

Whatever the reason for dismissal, clear procedures should be followed and the dismissal should be fair and suitably handled. Failure to comply with those procedures may potentially damage the company and result in the dismissal not being effective.
