Which aspects must be observed when terminating an employment relationship?

A termination is always valid. The notice of termination must be in writing and its receipt should be documented for evidentiary purposes. If the agreed period of notice is not observed, compensation must be paid. An employment relationship may be terminated with or without observing the notice period, whereby strict requirements have to be met for an immediate termination by the employer. The termination of employment can trigger a number of claims by the employee, such as a claim for severance pay (also called gratuity).
