Is my employer required to give me a reason for terminating my contract?

Termination of employment is a serious matter. It can be an upsetting and emotional time for employees, who will naturally have questions about why they were asked to leave.

In addition to giving due notice, employers are encouraged to explain their reasons for termination so that the employee can better understand the situation and achieve closure.

If your employer has not stated the reason in your termination letter, you can talk to the company’s management or Human Resources department to find out the reason.

If you feel you have been unfairly terminated, you can approach MOM for help.
