We spend a lot of time writing articles and training managers on “how to develop your team”, “improving performance” and other positive behaviours but what if they don’t work?
Occasionally in every business there will be that one employee who just does not want to improve or just cannot perform their role. At Simple HR we believe your employees are your most valued assets however employee’s that are unwilling or unable to change or improve are costly and time consuming.
So, how do you manage them out of your business fairly and with minimum impact and cost? There are five fair reasons for dismissal:
Loss/lack of qualification/statutory ban
Some other substantial reason (SOSR)
Throughout February and March we will be talking you through how best to manage each of these situations. Our final blogs in March will explain settlement agreements including when these should be used to provide the best outcome for your business and also how to manage an Employment Tribunal.
