1. Standard Dismissal Procedures

The following are guidelines only.

Seek professional advice before taking any steps to dismiss an employee.

To dismiss someone, employer’s must have a significant reason for the dismissal and also dismiss the worker in a procedurally fair way.

The procedures to be followed in each case are similar.

Even if you have a good reason for dismissing someone, if you do not follow the correct procedures, you will be found to have unjustifiably dismissed that employee. The employee would be able to bring a successful personal grievance claim against you under the Employment Relations Act (2000).
