Do your leaders know how to terminate an employee safely?
Termination is not a situation that should be taken lightly by any employer. Yet, when it is the only option or the most appropriate option Industryus HR can support your leaders through a compliant process to avoid an unfair dismissal ruling.
The Fair Work Act 2009, provides a number of protections for employees who are terminated or who feel they have been treated adversely. Often, the success of the employer in defending such claims will depend on the process they have engaged for the termination and the mitigating factors they have considered. This means that it is important to engage a HR specialist early on so that all the boxes are being ticked along the way. However, it is never too late to seek advice if you are planning on carrying out a termination. Often any faults with a process can be rectified to improve your company’s position and reduce exposure to actions such as unfair dismissal, prior to the termination occurring.
