Employers who behave fairly and reasonably, give proper warnings and follow the statutory dismissal and disciplinary procedure can dismiss employees who cannot do their jobs, or misbehave, or whose services are no-longer required.
Nevertheless, with so many pitfalls to fall into, it is small wonder that the number of claims to Employment Tribunals grows each year.
Unfair dismissal remains the biggest source of complaint and employers who get it wrong can face bills in excess of £50,000.
We advise on steps that should be taken before dismissing employees and ways of reducing the risk of disputes.
When all else fails, Nicholas Amor appears regularly for employers and employees in Employment Tribunal claims.
