Dismissal from work should only be as stipulated by law.

An employee can only be dismissed from work in writing as stipulated by law. There are many instances where people are fired on the spot by word of mouth. According to Kenyan Law it is stipulated that an employee can only be dismissed properly if he/she receives that information in written form from the employer. Francis Nyangaresi Angwenyi v Brinks Security Services Ltd [2019] eKLR. Dismissal of an employee without any justifiable cause, without a hearing or opportunity to give a defence is contrary to the provisions of section 35, 41 and 43 of the Employment Act, 2007 which requires that the employee be issued with notice, a hearing be conducted and termination of employment be based on genuine reasons. Without following these legal procedures, the resulting termination of employment is unfair. http://kenyalaw.org/caselaw/cases/view/170211/
