Grounds for dismissal include, among other things:  staff redundancy; employee’s failure to meet required competency standards as determined by the decision of a competency assessment body; liquidation of an enterprise; and violation of employment duties as determined by the employment contract or labor law.

There are statutory restrictions relating to the dismissal of certain categories of employees. In certain cases, an employer is required to report an employee’s dismissal to the appropriate state authorities and/or trade unions.
