Commercial reality dictates that sometimes the employment relationship needs to be brought to an end.
Common reasons for dismissal include misconduct, inadequate performance, incapability due to ill health and redundancy.
The Employment team is well versed in guiding employers through the necessary processes to ensure that the risk of unfair dismissal is minimised and employment is terminated as amicably as the circumstances will allow.
