Leaving and terminating employment
A contract of employment may be terminated by either the employer or employee – provided that the correct procedures are followed. Contracts may provide for extensions to the statutory notice periods, so it’s essential that you’re clear on the details in each individual case.
In addition, where an employee is dismissed on disciplinary grounds (such as capability, negligence or misconduct), you’ll need to protect yourself and your business from ‘unfair dismissal’ claims by following the correct disciplinary procedures.
If you’re in any doubt about the right way to part company with an employee - for whatever reason - a call to Quest is quick and easy. We’re here to put you on the right road and safeguard your business for the long haul.
