Dismissal is sometimes a poorly understood concept. Dismissal does not consist only of negative connotations – in fact dismissal is not a “punishment” but a normal operational activity essential to the achievement of business objectives.

What is common cause, however, is that the dismissal of employees always constitutes a high-risk area for employers, and sloppy management and incorrect dismissal procedures almost always lead to costly legal proceedings, reinstatements and settlements. What adds insult to injury is that, in most cases, the employer has had more than enough reason to dismiss under the circumstances.

This book explains that the “perfect dismissal” is not normally of a highly technical and complex nature and that the KISS principle applies to most dismissals, i.e. “keep it simple and straightforward”. The book also dispels some of the myths surrounding dismissal and will show you that it is relatively easy to comply with the requirements of law in order to ensure the fairness of a dismissal.
