‘Unfair dismissal’ is a familiar term in the world of work. But what actually constitutes as unfair?
As an employer, it’s important to know where you stand legally and the steps you can take to ensure dismissals are fair and reasonable.
Benjamin Baumgarten, a solicitor specialising in employment law with Colin Biggers & Paisley Lawyers, says: “Employment law is incredibly complex, and it’s very easy to make mistakes when you have the best intentions in mind.
“You should always seek advice from an expert in that field such as an employment lawyer when deciding whether or not to dismiss an employee.”
