The Process of Conducting Domestic Inquiry (Open To Public)
Do you know
A wrongful dismissed employee without just cause and excuse can be awarded damage capped to 24 months of the last drawn salary for confirmed employees?
A wrongful dismissed probationer without just cause and excuse can be awarded damage capped to 12 months of the last drawn salary for under-probation-employees?
The task of disciplining employees has been made increasingly difficult due to changes in the concept of natural justice, security of tenure and social justice. Wrongful dismissal can be very costly if the matter ends up at the Industrial Court and the company fails to defend the dismissal successfully.
When an employee claims for unfair dismissal under Sec 20 of the Industrial Relations Act 1967, the burden is on the employer to prove that the dismissal is carried out with just cause and excuse. If the Minister is not satisfied that the employee had been terminated justly, the case would be referred to the Industrial Court for adjudication. In many cases, the instances of misconduct were not successfully proven at the domestic inquiry proceedings.
