Dismissal of an employee can take different forms and employment laws in most countries dictate its manner. Termination with cause is usually the result of a significant violation such as dishonest conduct, deliberate disobedience, serious neglect of duties, etc.). In such cases, the terminated employee is not entitled to separation pay or notice. Termination without just cause means the employee is being terminated for reasons not having to do with misconduct and severance pay is usually defined by law.
