What are dismissals?
Dismissal is when the employer terminates the employment relationship against the employee. Dismissal should be a last resort but sometimes it is unavoidable and the relationship must end this way. To comply with legislation and best practice, employers should carry out necessary investigations without unreasonable delay to establish the facts.
Why do dismissals matter?
By following procedures this will also reduce negative effects on the rest of the organisation such as morale, retention and reputation but can also help reduce time and costs by getting the situation right the first time round.
