Can I be dismissed without proper notice?
Yes, but only if you are dismissed because your employer genuinely and reasonably believes that you are guilty of gross misconduct.
Such a dismissal is called a 'summary dismissal'. Although this way of terminating someone's employment can be lawful, the employer is still under an obligation to operate a fair procedure when dismissing. Please see the Discipline and grievance - Acas Code of Practice for more information.
