Discharge vs. Dismissal: What's the Difference?

When it comes to leaving a job, there are two ways it can happen: discharge and dismissal. Though they may sound similar, there is a big difference between the two. Discharge occurs when an employee is let go for a valid reason, such as poor performance or violating company policy. Dismissal, on the other hand, is when an employee is fired for an illegal reason, such as discrimination or harassment.

Knowing the difference between discharge and dismissal is important, as it can help you determine whether or not you have a case if you're ever let go from a job. If you're discharged, there's not much you can do about it. However, if you're dismissed, you may have grounds for legal action.
