The most common trigger for an employment related claim is an employee feeling aggrieved in relation to the termination of their employment.
It is vital to have a valid reason for the termination and follow a proper process.
Each termination differs due to the circumstances relevant to that particular employee and the business at the time of the termination. It is therefore crucial to understand the potential risks that may result from terminating an employee’s employment prior to proceeding with the termination.
Potential claims an employee may make where their employment is terminated include:
- Unfair dismissal claim
- General protection claim
- Discrimination or harassment complaint
- Underpayment claim
- Worker’s compensation claim
- Breach of contract claim
