It is important that if a business wishes to terminate an employee’s employment, that proper procedures and processes are followed. Otherwise, a business can be exposed to various claims including unfair dismissal, general protections, or discrimination claims.
MKI Legal has advised many businesses on the correct procedure to follow to ensure that a termination is lawful and that it can be defended if a claim is made.
If a claim is made, we can assist in defending a claim including representing the employer at conciliations. If a successful resolution is reached, we can prepare and negotiate the settlement agreement.
