Amotion refers to an act of depriving an individual of personal possessions. In corporate law, amotion is unlawful removal of an officer or executive from his post without any justification or before the expiration of his tenure in office. When an official is evicted or ousted from his post wrongfully. Although, in most cases, the ousted official or executive still maintains the right to be a member of the organization. This is different from disenfranchisement which means total dismissal or ejection from the organization.
