Can an employer fairly dismiss an employee for serious misconduct without any warnings?
In this episode of the podcast I cover a couple of points including a recent Appeal Tribunal case about unfair dismissal, an update on delays in the Employment Tribunal and a question answered about pregnancy and sickness.
In this episode I will cover:
- The case of MR A BARONGO v QUINTILES COMMERCIAL UK LIMITED;
- What you need to consider when deciding on dismissal in a case of serious, but not gross, misconduct;
- Why there are delays in the Employment Tribunal process currently;
- Whether you are able to ask an employee who is pregnant to fill in a sickness reporting form when absent due to sickness.
- Ensure that you seek advice before making a decision about dismissal;
- Obtain training or give guidance to your managers about how to deal with pregnant employees;
- Ensure that you stay up to date with employment law developments by signing up to our free fortnightly newsletter.
