I need clarification on termination of appointment. A clinic I worked for terminated my appointment stating the following reason that I self confirmed to them that I cannot carry out any task and procedures along with my baby that I have been blessed with in the last three months. I have not said this to them. Evidence of my written conversation with them does not also state the above reason. I do not know where they got such reason to terminate my appointment. Please I need your assistance.
Thank you for contacting us.
The circumstances that you have laid out would seem to amount to unfair dismissal and therefore you would have a valid claim for a case if you decided to take the matter to court. Whether you should take it to court is another matter entirely as it would depend on a lot of factors which can only be determined taking into consideration your personal circumstances, your employment contract, and the employee handbook of your employer (if any). All this information can only be gotten after a full consultation, we therefore suggest you consider scheduling a consultation with a lawyer here – https://lawpadi.com/consultation-packages/, or you may consider contacting Lagos State Citizens Mediation Centre – https://lagosministryofjustice.org/offices/citizens-mediation-centre/, they will be able to assist you for free.
