Do you need to dismiss someone?

Dismissing someone can be difficult and expensive if you get it wrong.

At present an unfairly dismissed employee with more than two years service can claim up to a maximum of £100,000.

Don’t panic. The average award is around £5,000, although you might have to pay your legal costs on top. Even these figures can be crippling for a small business which is why we are here to help. If an employer goes through the correct procedures at the right stages they can significantly reduce the risk of a claim and increase the chances that any claim bought against them will not succeed.
