Question 1 – The five most common HR questions we’re asked.

This is the first in a 5 part series of the most common questions we’re asked here at ADD HR Solutions.

I have an employee who is not doing what I want them to do can I get rid of them?

The answer is dependent on a number of things. How long have they been employed? If under 2 years there is no risk to the company of an unfair dismissal claim at an Employment Tribunal. Are they still in a probation period and if so you may want to extend the probation period or end their employment?

Caution should still be exercised in ensuring that there are no other underlying factors that have affected performance e.g. an underlying health issue that could be classed as a disability. There is no length of service requirement for bringing a discrimination claim to an Employment Tribunal.

So, in answer to the questions yes you can but you should always ensure a fair process and have a valid reason for dismissal.

If you’re having employee troubles at the moment, why not call us to discuss your options?
