Dismissal procedure

No one wants to get into firing an employee. We’ll help you avoid it if you can, but we’re on your side if you can’t. And we’re so confident in our advice, it’s guaranteed.

It’s hard to let go

We believe that the best approach for your business is to build a happy, productive workforce. Dismissing employees is expensive, time-consuming, demotivating and stressful. It’s better for everybody if you can sort out problems well before they get to this stage. That’s why we’ll help you to prioritise positive steps like performance management reviews, training and employee support programmes.

But sometimes it has to be done

Dismissing people you once trusted is one of the toughest parts of your job. Our sympathetic experts will be right by your side, day and night, to help you through it. From managing discipline and grievance to conducting investigations, helping with terminations, and managing staff affected by the dismissal, we’ll back you all the way. And if the worst happens, we’ll support you in a tribunal. If you’ve followed our advice, we’ll even pay your legal fees. We guarantee we won’t let you down.
