Psychosocial Experience of the Termination of the Employment Contract by the Dismissed Workers of the Mining Companies of Lubumbashi

Viviane Tshilemba Ntumba


Abstract: This article highlights the issue of the psychosocial experience of the termination of the employment contract by employees of mining companies in Lubumbashi. It relies on semi-structured interviews with 32 employees of MMG, who suffered the termination of employment contract, which we met at the ONEM (National Employment Office) / Lubumbashi, which are at looking for another job. The results show that dismissed employees describe this situation as bad luck, and a social humiliation, which is the experience of an injury in their self-esteem. Because this situation has caused the alteration of the self-image for each employee, and has consequences on their physical and psychological health. Key words: Psychosocial experience, work breakdown and dismissed workers.


Keywords: Psychosocial experience, termination of the employment contract and dismissed workers
