Abstract: An ordinary man may believed that his boss has exclusive right in every manner, including hiring and firing. As business undergraduates specializing in Human Resource Management, the group aims to study the understanding of Employment Act, specifically, provisions on dismissal law, in Singapore. The wonders of Law could hardly be appreciated without knowing its origin. In Chapter 1, this thesis gives an account of how Singapore was “discovered” by the British, and how the English Law came to the colony. In addition, the development of Singapore and how it nurtured the growth of Employment Act is examined. Finally, the chapter will conclude by looking at the maturing legal systems along with the growing importance of Singapore. In Chapter 2, the history of dismissal is disserted by examining the past dismissal cases. Both cases which took place in Singapore and Malaysia are studied. In addition, facts that constitute misconduct are noted. This paved the way towards Chapter 3, which is a comparative study of Statutory Dismissal Provisions in Singapore and Malaysia. In this chapter, the Group is amazed by the similarity in the wordings of the provisions, but however, drastic differences in applications. As future human resource practitioners, the Group is cautioned on the effect of the Law. It is to be appreciated and not to be taken lightly!
