Highlight: Top 5 Mistakes Made By Employers When Dismissing

Sir Alan Sugar

There is a great article in Personnel Today regarding the top mistakes made by employers when dismissing their employees. I’ll let you read the article yourself, but to summarise:

  1. Not making the reasons for dismissal clear enough
  2. Telling them the incorrect reason for dismissal
  3. Ignoring medical reports – This one is often forgotten about
  4. Focusing on incriminating evidence and ignoring supporting evidence
  5. Failing to conduct a proper appeal

Any of these can get you into to series trouble as an employer. If you are unsure, seek advice before going into disciplinary meetings.
