A summary dismissal is the termination of an employment contract for an urgent reason. An urgent reason is serious misconduct. The employee or employer may then terminate the contract immediately without observing a notice period. The terminating party must notify the other party of the dismissal ‘without delay’, i.e. immediately. An employee who is summarily dismissed is not entitled to unemployment benefits. An employee can request the court to annul the summary dismissal by the employer or to award a fair compensation. The court will annul the dismissal if there is no urgent reason or if the dismissal was not made immediately.
