Termination & Dismissal
Employee Termination & Dismissal without the fear
Some of the most significant changes introduced by the Fair Work Act 2009 that affect small businesses included changes to unfair dismissal laws. An employee can now make an unfair dismissal claim regardless of the business size, as long as they have completed the minimum employment periods and subject to certain other requirements.
There are two ways for employers to exit employees from their business - one by terminating employment and the other by making a position redundant. Either way, they are usually stressful and upsetting for everyone concerned.
So it is essential that you terminate employees legally and compliantly.
