I would appreciate if someone could shed some light on this matter. I've resigned on 16/11/07 and in the midst of serving a 2 month notice due to contractual obligations. However, the company now has threatened to dismiss me on the grounds of misconduct (being late for work a few times).
My contract states that "in the event either party wishes to terminate this agreement, either party must give two (2) months notice in writing.The employer may choose to pay two (2) month's salary as payment in lieu". What i would like to know is :
1. Can they dismiss me on the grounds of misconduct when im serving my resignation notice?
2. If they do dismiss me, am i liable to claim 2 months salary as I am only serving my notice
