Termination An Employee’s Contract Before Expiration


A was working for B. the contract was for two years for R10,000 a month. On 15th of Feb A fired B. is B entitled to the full salary of Feb? Can a person fire his worker for no reason?


 It is not permissible for the employer to fire the employee meaning terminating a one-year contract or one-month contract without a valid Sharee reason. If it so happened, the employee will still be entitled to his monthly salary till the end of his contract. In the same token, it will be necessary for the employee to avail himself for the required service for that duration.
