Refusing an Alternative Job:

Section 41 of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act provides that an employee who is dismissed for an operational reason is entitled to severance pay but the severance pay be forfeited if the employee unreasonably refuses an offer of alternative employment. The problem is always in determining whether the employee’s refusal of the other job was reasonable or not.
