Dismissal - performance, absenses & misconduct

Our key message here is do not ignore the misconduct, poor performance and / or ill health absence issues of any of your employees. These issues rarely rectify themselves and they frequently leave your business operating inefficiently. This is because managers and other staff will be distracted by the company not managing these performance, sickness or conduct matters. However, the second message is make sure you get the process right!

We understand that businesses will be concerned about unfair dismissal claims, or claims for discrimination and in particular disability discrimination claims or complaints, so you will need support and clear guidance from us. We have decades of experience in managing these issues. We will strategically manage this to get the right result for you including advising you, preparing letters and questions. You will not be on your own.

Why not let us  draft your disciplinary policy to give you a good start if these issues arise?

In our experience, managers are not trained on how to manage these processes. Let us train your managers. Follow this link to our training page.
