The employee had been employed as a full time sales assistant for 3 years and had been verbally warned about his angry outbursts in front of customers.
Unfortunately, however, he had not been warned that the employer was considering terminating him if his conduct did not improve. The employer then met with the employee without warning and handed him a dismissal letter. The employer had also not filled out the Small Business Dismissal Code.
BetterHR was able to negotiate a successful outcome for the employer including a settlement without it going to a costly hearing.
BetterHR urges small business employers to contact its legally qualified HR advisors before they dismiss an employee to ensure they comply with the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code.
