Conduct dismissals: Avoiding the common pitfalls (webinar)

Available on demand

Making a mistake during the dismissal process can be costly in terms of time and money and lead to an unfair dismissal claim.

Max Winthrop, head of the employment team at Short Richardson & Forth and XpertHR contributing author, sets out the common pitfalls when dismissing staff on conduct grounds, and explains how to avoid them.

Common pitfalls include:

  • not setting out the nature of the allegations properly;
  • getting the reason for dismissal wrong;
  • focusing on evidence that incriminates the employee and ignoring evidence that may point to his or her innocence; and
  • failing to conduct an appeal process.

Hosted by Personnel Today editor Rob Moss, this free 60-minute webinar in association with XpertHR also includes a live Q&A session, allowing you the opportunity to ask Max Winthrop your questions about conduct dismissals.
