[I] INTRODUCTION

The task of disciplining employees has been made increasingly difficult due to changes in the concept of natural justice, security of tenure and social jus-tice. Wrongful dismissal can be very costly if the matter ends up at the Industrial Court and the company fails to defend the dismissal successfully. When an employee claims for unfair dismissal un-der Sec 20 of the Industrial Relations Act, 1967, the burden is on the employer to prove that the dis-missal is carried out with just cause and excuse. If the Minister is not satisfied that the employee had been terminated justly, the case would be referred to the Industrial Court for adjudication. In many cases, the instances of misconduct were not successfully proven at the domestic inquiry proceedings. The flaw either lies in the investigation process or the inability of the prosecution to effectively establish the charges against the accused.
