Termination from employment

In a meeting Executive Director told an employee you leave the job and that employee has told

okay, he will leave. This is verbal communication. Can it be treated as Employer order of termination.

Is serving notice period mandatory for employee or can it be treated as termination order from date

of the meeting. Pl. suggest.

we have to go by what appointment  order says and serivce rules of the company says.verbal order and acceptence will not hold good in front of law.if app.order says termination notice to be given u have to oblige.

Thanks a lot Ragvan.

The appointment order contains that notice from both side should be three months. But is not clear about verbal or written

notices. Can verbal order of company's Executive Director treated as notice ?

Verbal orders not at all valid.

three months notice on either side means it should be in writing, it is implied one, oral orders doesnot hold good in front of law.


Agreed with the experts. oral orders doesn't hold water in the view of the LAW. even its given by the top most post. so ask your HR dept to issue the in writen the notice period as per mentioned in the appointment letter. If nothing works knock the door of labour court.
