What can you do if you have been dismissed verbally/via WhatsApp or e-mail?
Your employer has dismissed you verbally, by phone, WhatsApp, text message or e-mail and told you to stop coming to work.
This is not a valid dismissal! Please note: you also need to take action against these (invalid) dismissals!
You should continue to go to work and offer your services among witnesses. If your employer then sends you away, you can take legal action against the dismissal within 3 weeks by filing an action for unfair dismissal with the labour court. If you allow this deadline to pass, the invalid dismissal will become effective. Then there is nothing more you can do. In the event of termination without notice, this can lead to disadvantages in terms of unemployment benefits.
