If the employee falls in the category of the workman as defined in section 2(s) of the ID Act, and has completed 240 days of service in a year, his services can not be terminated without following procedure contained in section 25F of the Act. However if it is termination simpliciter on less than one year of service no remedy is available in ID Act unless the termination is malafide and it casts a slur on the career of the employee. In Civil Law it has been held that services of a permanent employee can not be terminated by a simple notice.
