Summary: Other Dismissals

The most common reasons for dismissing employees are misconduct, poor performance, absence or redundancy. However, there are other potentially fair reasons for dismissal, such as that an employee lacks the qualifications for their position; their continued employment will breach a statutory duty or restriction; or there is ‘some other substantial reason’ justifying their dismissal such as pressure from a client or customer, or risk to your reputation if they continue to be employed.
