Employment Termination Advice


The employment relationship can end for a variety of reasons. Although sometimes it's amicable, more often it is not.

Whatever reason you have for wanting to end the relationship, we can quickly analyse the risks and guide you through complex and constantly changing employment laws to ensure the best outcome for your business is achieved with minimum inconvenience and risk.

How to conclude an employment relationship

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 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.

We work with you to protect your business against the risk of making the wrong decision and draft all documents required, such as letters and guidance for investigations and meetings. If you do not have the resources or are too busy to carry out the process yourself, then our CIPD qualified HR professional can as a consultant on your behalf.

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

We provide strategic advice, geared towards achieving the best commercial and practical solution for your business.
