EMPLOYMENT DISMISSAL PROCEDURES AND LAWS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND MALAYSIA -- A LEGAL ANALYSIS
Purpose -- The purpose of this paper is to give a better insight to the legal society, practitioners and legislators of the working mechanisms of employment dismissal procedures and laws in the United Kingdom (UK) and Malaysia. At the same time, this paper provides an overview on the applicability and practicability of the differing procedures and laws by adducing a comparative analysis.
Design/methodology/approach -- This paper achieves this by having a cross-sectional analysis onto the legislation in Malaysia and that of the UK. Lots of references to cases from both jurisdictions have been included as well. Last but not least, the author also surveyed into the different points of view from journal articles in Malaysia, the UK and globally.
Findings -- The UK and Malaysia have their own legal framework when dealing with employment dismissal procedures and laws but there are lacunaes that need to be addressed. Notwithstanding this, the laws are entrenched but continue to evolve as time progresses.
Practical implications -- This paper will give a deeper insight to the legal society on the intricacies and complexities that surround the issue of employment dismissals and it provides solutions to grey areas that are in dire need to be addressed.
Originality/value -- This paper could be a useful source of information for practitioners, academics, policymakers and students and a guide for any possible future amendments to the current insufficiency as it guides the reader through the labyrinth of employment procedures and laws in the UK and Malaysia.
