Termination of Employment Advice


Employment relationships may end for a variety of different reasons. Although they can be amicable, often they are not. Whatever the reason you have for wanting to end someone's employment, we can quickly analyse the risks and guide you through complex employment laws to ensure the best outcome for your business is achieved with the minimum inconvenience and risk.

Making the decision to terminate employment

There are several fair reasons for dismissing an employee: capability or health, qualifications, misconduct, redundancy or performance. Each will have to be approached in a different way. Using an incorrect reason or not following a fair procedure can cause delay and expose your business to a claim of unfair dismissal.

Dismissals for redundancy and ill health or where there is a potentially discriminatory reason require particular care. It is not always the case that employees need two years' continuous service to be able to bring a claim for unfair dismissal.

Even if there aren't obvious grounds to dismiss someone fairly, sometimes it is clear the relationship is not working. We can help you to terminate the employment though settlement agreements if appropriate.
