You cannot terminate the services of an employee without affording him an opportunity to explain his position and then weigh the reply submitted by the employee before arriving at awarding punishment.
VS Rajan Associates has shown the law that needs to be respected.

Summary termination of an employee for acts of misconduct committed by him would be held to be bad in law. Therefore I will advise you against this.

You will have to go through the entire process of handling instances of indicipline and then decide upon the punishment you wish to inflict upon the concerned employee.

The process is defined in the Standing Orders of the Company in a factory situation. The Shops & Establishments Act defines the process if the establishment is covered under the Shops Act.

Best Wishes,

The process of domestic enquiry and principle of natural justice will have to be followed before coming to conclusion by CDA on dismissal/termination as penalty for the misconduct.

Without adhering to principal of natural justice, termination may prove fatal to the organisation. Need to follow proper proceedure before termination or imposing any punishment to an erant employee. it will save litigation cost and time of the organisation.
