  • Employee Termination Letter due to Redundancy

    Terminate your employee because his position has become redundant and in excess of what the business actually needs

    Image

    Employees in the Philippines enjoy security of tenure which means that an employee can be dismissed only: (a) for causes provided by law; and (b) after due process is observed.

    Employers can dismiss an employee based only on just and authorized causes. Just causes are based on acts attributable to an employee’s own wrongful actions or negligence (i.e. insubordination, habitual tardiness). Authorized causes refer to lawful grounds for termination which do not arise from the employee’s fault or negligence (i.e. closure of the business, retrenchment to prevent losses). On the other hand, due process refers to the employee’s right to be informed of the reason for his dismissal and, in case of just cases, an opportunity to defend himself.

    An Employee Termination Letter helps satisfy both of the above requirements by informing the employee that his employment is being terminated and the reason for the same. It also includes other details of the termination such as the date when the termination will be effective and the amount of separation pay the employee will receive.

    Image

    An Employment Contract (the “Contract”) is a written agreement between the employer and employee stating the terms of the latter’s employment.  The Contract contains stipulations regarding the employee’s (a) salary; (b) benefits & allowances; (c) job title; and (d) job responsibilities.

    The Contract may also contain stipulations intended to protect the employer during and after the employment relationship such as (a) confidentiality of the employer’s proprietary information and trade secrets; (b) non-solicitation of the employer’s clients and employees; and (c) the employer’s ownership of intellectual property rights over the employee’s work.  

    With Legal Tree you can easily create an Employment Contract with all the essential terms of the employment relationship. You may also add stipulations to further protect the employer (i.e. non-competition, non-solicitation) as discussed above.
