Mode of Termination of Employment

While advising a company, we may be faced with advising a company on modes of termination of employment of services where an employee has been found to have conducted fraudulent activities. The question would be, can such an employee be relieved of his services immediately without any prior notice period and can he/she take any legal action against the company?
