Purpose

To declare PMU guidelines with regards to the Dismissal Policy and ensure uniform interpretation and application of this policy.

Statement :

There are two (2) types of dismissal:  one is a dismissal for cause and the second is dismissal without cause.  A dismissal for cause will mean that the employee’s Employment Contract is terminated with immediate effect and this action will attract penalty provisions that are set out in employee’s Contract.  A dismissal without cause will attract a pay in lieu of notice requirement as per the Contract provisions.  In either case, a dismissal will require a recommendation from the Dean/Director to the Vice Rector to the Rector.  Only the Rector may approve the dismissal of any employee.  The actual dismissal will be by the Dean or Director of the area concerned.
PMU reserves the right to move directly to the dismissal stage in any case that is deemed by PMU to warrant an immediate dismissal
