Complex Potential Dismissals

Contact Us

A poor performing or misbehaving employee can cause significant issues for employers. However, failure to adopt a methodical approach to their dismissal can make a bad situation even worse. Getting advice upfront on how to manage the dismissal strategically is the antidote.

A problematic employee can cause a ripple effect of damage throughout a business. They may not only cause issues for their direct manager, but also for other employees, their colleagues and for customers. Failing to take appropriate action in a prompt, lawful and delicate manner can result in these issues compounding.

We assist employers with:

  • managing the dismissal of an employee;
  • mitigating risks in relation to unfair dismissal and other employment claims;
  • protecting the business after the dismissal is communicated (including confidential information); and
  • situations involving multiple dismissals.

Approach

When managing complex dismissals, we:

  • provide you with a clear and transparent quote;
  • discuss your objectives and the potential sensitivities for the dismissal;
  • work closely with you to design a strategy which mitigates risks; and
  • implement the strategy and adapt where necessary.

We understand that dismissing an employee is a challenging process. Our focus is unashamedly on protecting your business. We pride ourselves on acting promptly, pragmatically and strategically.

FAQ

Can I get advice after I dismiss an employee?

Yes. However, it is usually better to get advice prior to dismissing an employee to ensure that you do it in an appropriate and lawful way.
