The termination of a person’s employment is not to be taken lightly. The consequences to both the employer and employee can be serious. If not handled properly, the risk to the employer of becoming involved in expensive and time consuming disputation with the ex-employee increases dramatically.
By taking appropriate advice prior to terminating any employee, these risks (especially in respect of expense and time and money) can be significantly reduced or, ideally, avoided altogether.
In this context, the old saying “A stitch in time saves nine” has never been truer.
Bennett & Philp’s Employment Team is experienced in advising employers on termination of employment and assisting the employer through the termination process.
Our team is particularly experienced in the giving of advice as to the legal requirements and processes associated with genuine redundancies.
