The difference between being terminated and dismissed

There is a big difference between being terminated and dismissed. In the event of termination, you remain on duty during the notice period. In the event of dismissal, you must leave your employment immediately.

In the event of termination, you may retain your salary and employment conditions during the notice period, ie. you are entitled to payments during the entire notice period. You also have an obligation to work during the notice period if you and your employer don't agree otherwise.

If you are fired, you will be dismissed from your employment immediately and your employment will end on the same day as you are dismissed. In addition, you are no longer entitled to salary and other employment benefits. However, an employer may only dismiss an employee if he or she has seriously breached his or her obligations to the employer. Read more about the grounds for dismissal here.
