Dismissal of staff

Employers are often daunted by the prospect of dismissing a member of staff and fear the consequences.

We offer experienced legal advice to businesses in Thanet, Canterbury and across Kent to help avoid many of the pitfalls associated with the need to handle a dismissal.

Employers can dismiss staff if certain conditions are met. You will have the right to dismiss if you can prove that your employee is unable to do their job properly (capability), is suffering a long term illness that prevents them from successfully doing their job, has been made redundant fairly, or is guilty of gross misconduct.

It is very important that when dealing with the dismissal you act fairly, following your own policies and procedures carefully.
