The Mauritian law of procedural fairness within the context of dismissal for misconduct : a comparative study with the South African doctrine of unfair labour practice.
The main premise of this treatise is to discuss the Mauritian Law of Procedural Fairness within the context of Dismissal for Misconduct: A comparative study with the South African Doctrine of unfair Labour Practice. It analyses in detail the types of misconduct that eventually leads to the dismissal of an employee. The dismissal has not only to be substantively fair but also procedurally fair. To support the views expressed in the research, reference has been made to labour law cases decided mainly in Mauritius and South Africa. There are, however, references to other jurisdictions such as India, England, Australia, Namibia. The major constraint that the researcher encountered was the unavailability of decided cases referred from the Industrial Court of Mauritius. Most of the cases referred to in the Mauritian context are the Supreme Court decisions on dismissals due to misconduct. Thus for lack of relevant cases in Mauritius, there is a heavy reliance on cases decided in South Africa and other jurisdictions. These references have constructively enhanced the legal dimension of the topic under discussion.
