LABOUR LAW – APPEAL – WHETHER TERMINATION OF CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT CONSTITUTES DISMISSAL
The first respondent was employed as a teacher by the appellant Ebenezer English Private School. The first respondent was unqualified to teach in the appellant’s school, firstly, because his academic qualifications were not evaluated by the Namibia Qualifications Authority and secondly, he did not have a valid work permit. The Directorate of Education carried out an assessment of the appellant’s school and issued recommendations, among others, that the appellant must employ qualified teachers. Based on the recommendations, the appellant terminated the first respondent’s contract . . .
