  • Employee dismissals/sacking
    If businesses have a fair reason, reach a reasonable decision and follow a fair procedure, they can confidently dismiss an employee.
  • Sickness absence
    Absence from work because of sickness can put your business in a tricky situation, particularly if you have no sickness absence policies in place for dealing with it.
  • Performance management
    Managing performance is key to how well your employees will be engaged in their work and how well they will perform. Performance management is central to the relationship between employers/managers and employees.
  • Redundancy
    Redundancy is a form of dismissal. It can happen, for instance, when an employee’s job no longer exists. If an employee is made redundant they may be eligible for certain rights such as redundancy pay, time off to look for another job and consultation with the employer.
  • Employee disciplinary
    Employers should put their disciplinary procedure in writing and make it easily available to their staff. The employee disciplinary procedure should say what performance and behaviour might lead to disciplinary action and what action the employer might take.
  • Employee grievance
    Employee grievances are concerns, problems or complaints raised by a staff member with their employer. Employers should have their employee grievance procedure in writing and make sure all staff are aware of any policy or procedure.
