Legal support for terminating employee contracts

Terminating an employee’s contract can be stressful and costly if not done correctly, our team of expert Employment Law Solicitors can help with that.

Terminating an employee’s contract is never a situation an employer wants to be in, but sometimes it is necessary. If not done correctly, it could lead to a potential Employment Tribunal.

There is a right way and a wrong way of carrying out an Employment Termination. The main thing is to ensure that you have a valid reason for terminating an employee’s contract, otherwise you could leave yourself open to an Unfair Dismissal claim or even a Discrimination claim.

Employment Termination FAQs

What is Employment Termination?

Employment Termination is the process and action of ending an employee’s Contract of Employment. This must be done with care and be justifiable or there could be costly legal consequences.

What can happen if we get it wrong?

If you either don’t have a fair reason to dismiss an employee, or you don’t follow a fair reason when doing so (or both), the employee may bring a claim for unfair dismissal against you. In addition, if the reason for the employment termination is due to one or more of the protected characteristics, the employee may be able to bring a discrimination claim against you.
