It’s all about the process
You can dismiss people, as long as you follow a fair and reasonable procedure. You might have a valid reason, but if the way you do it is unfair, you risk a claim for unfair dismissal.
Reasons for fair dismissal:
- Poor conduct
- Poor performance/capability
- The law does not allow the employee to do that job
- A substantial reason such as end of contract or refusal to agree to new terms of employment
|HIGH RISK LEVEL: Employers routinely skip a fair Performance Review|
