    Can a company terminates an employee from service for being irresponsible?

    I am running a private company. We have an employee who is working with us from last one year. But suddenly he stopped reporting us. We send many letters & reminders on his address but the address was fake. Can we terminate the employee or for how much time should we wait for his response?

    Hello, i think you waited too long so don't wait anymore. Maybe he got another job so he is not returning back. There is no reason for you to wait for an employee who doesn't show up,come on, employ some one else there are many educated unemployed people out there.
    Don't let a single employee obstruct your company life has to go on, so just carry on.
    All the best

    Dear Aspirant,

    Yes,you can surely terminate such employee who is giving you trouble.I think you have given him sufficient time to terminate him from his service.Make a records of your correspondence made to him with due acknowledgement.Lastly send a registered letter to his permanent address with due acknowledgement giving him 10 days time to report on duty after receipt of this last letter & mention clearly that his service will be terminated there after if he does not report to his duty in the time given.If you don't get any response & the letter is not served him,get in writing on the envelop by the post man the reason for not being served the letter.Then close his file with the decision of termination.

    There won't be any legal claim by the concerned employee in future if he claims it later.

    Thanks.

    Ashok

    Hello Friend !!

    Yes, you have right to Terminate an employee when he/she is violating the Company Rules.

    You can wait for 3 months to see a change in the employee, if the employee is still behaving the same then you can terminate him with a notice period.

    When you are terminating an employee, see that the Records of that employee is cleared.

    And also give his wages if he supposed to get anything.

    Return all the original documents which you have taken from him.

    And you can insist to give an experience certificate.

    You can also remark BAD in his conduct certificate.

    Good Luck !!

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!


    Yes friend,I feel that you should move on and start looking for a substitute of him!
    Since the employee is not responding to your letters,it shows his disinterest in carrying on with the job!

    You can advertise for the vacancy in the newspaper or if you like you can you for a person in your organisation who is capable of fitting into his shoes.


    Best of Luck!

    Hello there,

    >> Yes, as a private company owner, you do hold the right to terminate an employee from service for being so irresponsible.
    >>
    Providing fake address is height of absence of sensibility. He should not have done this anyway.
    >>
    You have been appropriate to take steps for contacting him. You should even try contacting him via phone if possible.

    >> Its still quite possible that he would be in trouble and so he is unable to respond to you.
    >>
    So I recommend you to wait for another month.
    >> But soon after, if he remains absent, you can issue a termination letter.
    >> As an owner, you should decide the best for your company as you have done enough already.

    Good Luck !!

    hi, friends
    always remember termination policy depends and differs from company to company, so just being irresponsible is not a strong point for a company to terminate unless and until you have been given enough warnings or if you have really committed a serious and irrepairable damage.

    Re: Can a company terminates an employee from service for being irresponsible?

    Hi..I certainly think such irresponsible employees should not be entertained and allowed to take undue advantage of your leniency..You should certainly take strict action against this employee which will be a good lesson for other employees as well and no one will try to do such a thing in future..So i think you should certainly do something and that too soon..

    Firstly you try to find the whereabouts of this employee..If you find his real address then send him a letter regarding his irresponsible and ridiculous behaviour and tell him to report to you soon..When he reports then hand him his termination letter and tell him to serve the notice period according to the company's policies and then leave..

    But if you dont find the address then wait for him to report to you and when he does hand him his termination letter..

    Such employees dont deserve a second chance who cheat their employers like this ..

    Good luck..THanks

    Hello firend..
    First of all it is sad to know that such irresponsible people exist in the society and create problems for their employees. On the other hand there can be a genuine problem at his end due to which he is unable to reach to you. You should consider the past record of the employee. If the previous record has been good then there is a probability that this lack of communication may be circumstantial and inevitable.
    You can send an email on the email id of the employee in your records and mention that if he fails to reach you within a period of 15 days his job will be terminated. Alternatively you can also send a letter on any other postal address that you have in your records (other than the fake one).
    Incase he fails to reply to you within this 15 day period then you can terminate his job without any second thought. For your records you should keep a proof of the letter/ email that you are sending to the employee.

    All the best.

    Yes you can terminate the employee from his services.

    You should wait for 15 days , then send two escalation letters on the provided address and mail id. If even after that teh employee is not responding, you can terminate his employment and even has right to deny to all the benefits you have promised.

    Thanks

    Re: Can a company terminates an employee from service for being irresponsible?

    It is nice to see your patience.First of all,you have to make sure whether there was any contract by him and your company.If it is so,you have to see whether the contract period is over or not.If the contract period is over,you can terminate the employee.If it is not so,then you can make an affidavit of his irregularity.Then you can chuck him out.The things that you should do before terminating his service are:1.Try to contact him at his address once more with a warning letter of terminating his job.2.Try to contact him online and give a warning of termination of his job.3.Make an affidavit of his absence.Since it has been almost a year of his absence,so you can go for a new employee at that post.

    Since the Employee has not been reporting to the Office without informing, you have to take action against him.
    As per the Procedure , you have sent the letters to the address mentioned by him at the time of joining.

    Since you have not received any reply and also the address as found to be fake, you should immediately terminate him from the services of the company and term him as absconding.
    This letter should be sent to the address mentioned by him and keep a copy of that letter in your records.

    Hi,

    yes, you can terminate the employee.

    You can mention these points in his termination letter-

    For being irresponsible towards the duties.

    For not reporting in the office for past _ days.

    For absconding from the address mentioned by him.

    You an also consult a legal person for keeping yourself safe from any court case also.

    Dear Friend yes there is a provision of terminating the employee but giving a specific reason for the termination.. Like you can give the reason like the employee is not behaving well int he office or he is not applicable for the work assigned to him.. These will be the enough reasons for terminating the employee.. But before termination you can give him a opportunity to improve himself.. ALL THE BEST

    Hello friend..You should certainly not let this employee stay in your company and as your employee any longer and surely you should terminate his services from immediate effect..

    Such people should not be given second chance and thus you should terminate his services soon to teach him not to cheat someone likie this..Hopefully he learns a lesson and thus this would also help him in future...So its also for his betterment so that he realizes his mistake..

    Firstly you should try to find him and if you do call him to your ofice and give him the termination letter and ask him to complete the formalities for the same..If you dont find him then i dont think he wil come back and is as good as terminated..

    Best of luck..

    Hello friend,
    You have not clearly mentioned that is it a public sector or a private sector,In the private sector you will be fired for anything for not being responsible ,but for a public sector you don't find it because most of them are not responsible but there are good people who are dedicated,In what ever the firm you join be good and responsible and dedicated for it.

    Hello, i believe you waited too long thus do not wait any longer. perhaps he got another job thus he's not returning back. there's no reason for you to attend for associate degree worker United Nations agency does not show up,come on, use some one else there ar several educated at leisure folks out there.

    Do not let one worker hinder your company life must press on, thus simply keep on.

    Yes,you can sure as shooting terminate such worker United Nations agency is providing you with bother.I think you've got given him decent time to terminate him from his service.Make a records of your correspondence created to him with due acknowledgement.Lastly send a registered letter to his permanent address with due acknowledgement giving him ten days time to report on duty when receipt of this last letter & mention clearly that his service are going to be terminated there when if he doesn't report back to his duty within the time given.

    If you do not get any response & the letter isn't served him,get in writing on the enclose by the post man the rationale for not being served the letter.Then shut his file with the choice of termination.

    There will not be any legal claim by the involved worker in future if he claims it later.
    I definitely assume such flighty staff shouldn't be diverted and allowed to require undue advantage of your leniency..You should definitely take strict action against this worker can which can be an honest lesson for alternative staff yet and nobody will try and do such a factor in future..So i believe you ought to definitely do one thing which timely..

    first off you are trying to search out the whereabouts of this worker..If you discover his real address then send him a letter relating to his flighty and ridiculous behavior and tell him to report back to you presently..When he reports then hand him his termination letter and tell him to serve the notice amount in step with the company's policies then leave..

    however if you do not realize the address then anticipate him to report back to you and once he will hand him his termination letter..

    Such staff do not merit a second likelihood United Nations agency cheat their employers like this .

    First of all it's unhappy to grasp that such flighty folks exist within the society and make issues for his or her staff. On the opposite hand there may be a real drawback at his finish attributable to that he's unable to achieve to you. you ought to contemplate the past record of the worker. If the previous record has been sensible then there's a likelihood that this lack of communication could also be specific and inevitable.
    you'll be able to send associate degree email on the e-mail id of the worker in your records and mention that if he fails to achieve you among a amount of fifteen days his job are going to be terminated. as an alternative you'll be able to additionally send a letter on the other communication address that you simply have in your records (other than the pretend one).
    just in case he fails to reply to you among this fifteen day amount then you'll be able to terminate his job with none rethink. For your records you ought to keep a symptom of the letter/ email that you simply ar causing to the worker.
