An employee can put his resignation by serving one month's notice period or pay in lieu thereof if no particular period of notice period is mentioned in the letter of appointment.
However, an employer cannot terminate the service of the person by simply giving notice period or salary thereof. Before terminating a service, many factors need to be considered like -
1. Nature of the employee - weather workman or not.
2. Nature of company and strength of worker.
3. Tenure of employment.
4. Reason of such termination

Delhi Shop and Establishment Act states that when an employee has served for 3 months, he has to be given one month notice. Other state acts may be checked for such provision. Col.Rathi

Dear Sir,
Termination as a punishment like a sentence; a sentence causing economic death of any employee and that hits to many others along with him are all family dependent members also . Therefore, taking plea of labor jurisprudence on and forward and same being a social obligation, major cases of termination even all cases where principles of natural justice were observed, offences concluded in inquiry proceedings , were turned down by Labour Courts.There is no doubt, any straight action of termination atleast in cases of workman is liable to be set aside if punishment got inflicted in terms of notice pay.
In non-workman cases, remedy is available in Civil court, having right jurisdiction. Its time consuming process and there are various courts till you reach for appropriate legally claimable relief against wrongful dismissal.

Generally service conditions contained in the Offer and Apptt. letter issued to an employee are the governing principles for deliberating any issue when dispute arises. Law require there shall be proper terms & conditions exists between parties as required under the Contract Act. When such terms are not present naturally disputes are referred to judicial review. It is quite natural the aggrieved party seeks the interventions of labour courts/Tribunals/HC/SC. Therefore to ensure natural justice is met in the matter of termination one has to examine what the terms & conditions says about the notice and how to proceed when notice is complied with. In any case a notice of terminations is necessary. How much depends on case to case basis. A minimum of one month prior notice or notice pay in lieu of adv.notice is required when suitable compensation is also accompanied. If there is no compensation package it is sure the case will knock the doors of justice. Please see attached analysis for further info.
