The dismissal of an employee whether due to redundancy, performance issues or misconduct, is never going to be pleasant and should always be a last resort. When it does become necessary, the manner in which it is handled can make an enormous difference to how the dismissal affects the employee and employer.  This practical guide will:

  • identify what can go wrong – including a snapshot of the principles relating to unfair dismissal, general protections claims and breach of contract;
  • provide a practical, step-by-step guide on safeguarding you from these risks; and
  • if legal proceedings are inevitable, give valuable tips on how to minimise the cost, risk and stress of responding to a claim.

Presented by Kott Gunning’s Employment Law and Workplace Safety Team Partner Tim Lethbridge

Why should governance professionals attend? The process can be executed with confidence and with relatively low risk of adverse consequences providing there is a clear understanding of the steps required and the reasons for those steps.  Practising chartered secretaries, governance advisers and risk managers will benefit from the practical nature of the talk supported by practical case studies and the opportunity to ask questions in a relaxed environment.
