As there is no misconduct on the part of the employee how can the employer terminate the services of such employee
However struck off name from the enrolment as Advocate by the Bar can be made as the misconduct is made on the part of the council
Please clarify

Yes only if the terms of employment is such as he should not be member of other organization as BAR. But BAR may cancel his registration on the ground of being employer of govt.

Certain categories of employees with legal quaifications serving in legal branch of Government and registered with the Bar Council as such assist lawyers representing the Government. Such persons fear no such consequence.
Non disclosure of employment information may attract action by Bar Council.
