What is a termination or dismissal?

This is a written declaration that ends an existing contractual relationship. For example, you can terminate an employment relationship. Both the employer and the employee can terminate the relationship. The employer dismisses the employee; the employee writes a termination.

There are two different types of termination/dismissal:

  • Ordinary termination is also called termination with notice because certain deadlines apply. These deadlines can be found in the employment contract or collective agreement. After the probationary period, the deadline is at least four weeks. But there can always be exceptions.
  • Extraordinary termination is also known as termination without notice. There are no deadlines. However, you need good cause for extraordinary termination (examples: violence in the workplace or theft). The employment contract is then terminated immediately.
