HR managers do not just wake up and send employees home

What you need to know:

  • If you have received a letter advising you of termination under "personal grounds", you should appeal.
  • If there were any concerns on your performance lately, this could be a red flag you may have ignored.
  • Nepotism is quite common in some organisations. You could appeal your termination on such grounds, however, the onus will be on you to prove your claim.

Q: I had worked for my former employer for five years before I was fired on what HR termed “personal grounds”. The HR manager who issued me the termination letter happens to be my cousin, and I believe that he was on a revenge mission when he fired me. How do I handle the issue?
