Employers should have a fair and legally compliant dismissal procedure in place that they can use when terminating a contract of employment.
Linder Myers unfair dismissal solicitors are highly experienced in guiding employers throughout dismissal processes to make sure that procedures remain entirely lawful, helping to protect businesses from dismissal disputes as well as time-consuming and costly unfair dismissal claims.
Poor performance and misconduct dismissals
An employer typically has grounds to dismiss an individual working within their workplace for one of two reasons:
Poor performance – an employee is under performing, or is not capable of carrying out their job to an adequate standard.
Misconduct – an employee has severely misbehaved on one occasion, or has continued to do so following a series of warnings.
Our unfair dismissal solicitors can provide specialist legal guidance throughout both poor performance and misconduct dismissals, ensuring that proper consideration is given to each stage so that everything remains entirely fair and legally compliant.
