Sometimes an employee behaves badly and you will be tempted to end their employment. Remember you cannot dismiss any employee without a valid, sound, and defensible reason. The law says valid reasons are:
In each case, you must follow fair and transparent procedures for dismissal, as described in the employee handbook or employment contract.
Tell the employee in writing about the allegations against them and give them an opportunity to respond. If you do not follow good practice in a dismissal process, you run the risk they will make an unfair dismissal claim. Always seek advice straightaway.
Employsure advisers are experts in dismissal and valid reasons for it.
