Under the Jordanian Labour Act 1996, it is not permissible for the employer to terminate the employee’s contract without giving the labourer/ employee at least one month notice before the date of termination. This is because sudden dismissal may cause hardship on the employee such as finding him/herself unemployed. However, there are cases where the employer is exempted from giving such notice due to either the nature of the contract (such as in the case of definite period contracts and the case of employment under probation), or the nature of termination (such as in the cases where the termination is due to the conduct of the employee amounting to a major error, or due to technical or economic justifications (redundancy)). This study is devoted to treating all these cases, in an analytical, critical style, in order to see to what extent the above mentioned cases present real reflection of the philosophy behind sudden termination of employment; i.e. exemption to notice of employment termination
