Our Employment Solicitors Claire Berry and Joanna Smye delivered a free webinar on ‘what happens when an employee cannot do their job?’.
“Capability” is one of the 5 potentially fair reasons for dismissing an employee, and applies to both poor performance and ill-health. However, managing employees who are unable to do all or part of their job effectively is rarely straightforward. Terminating employment without following key steps could lead to a Tribunal claim where the dismissal is found to be unfair and, depending on the circumstances, discriminatory.
Our Employment Solicitors, Claire Berry and Joanna Smye, go through the law and practice of managing capability, up to and including termination of employment. We cover:
- Performance management, including when there is an underlying health problem and
- Absence management, for both intermittent and long-term absence from work.
