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.

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.
