We acted for Petronas in this claim of unfair dismissal filed by a former employee who, after about 14 years in service, was dismissed on the ground of poor performance.

We were successful in this case against the employee as we adduced evidence that the Company had given the employee sufficient opportunity and guidance to improve her performance via a performance improvement plan for 9 months which involved proper records of coaching and counselling sessions. The Industrial Court held that the dismissal was with just cause and excuse.

This case was led by Ms Wong Keat Ching, a partner in Employment and Industrial Relations.
