Managing Dismissals & Claims
You may be in a situation with an employee where it is simply not working out. They may not be performing or hitting their targets, perhaps they have done something wrong. You may be restructuring or refocusing your business and there is a need to reduce your headcount.
In these situations, it is critical that you get things right from the start to avoid costly mistakes. We can guide you through what is a complex and difficult process, weighted against the employer and tilted in favour of the employee. Unfortunately for today’s businesses, people are becoming more and more litigious. There is little disincentive for an employee to bring a claim against their employer and the cost to defend it in terms of your time, energy and money can be significant. Such claims are a distraction and take you away from your priority of running your business.
