Dismissal: Illegality

If an employee cannot continue to work in their position without either you or the employee breaching a statutory duty or restriction, this can be a fair reason for dismissing them. An example would be where continued employment would breach immigration rules. However, it is not automatically fair to dismiss for this reason and to avoid a claim of unfair dismissal you need to follow a fair procedure and act fairly and reasonably overall.
