Termination of employment

Stephen SimpsonEditor's message: The termination of a worker's employment is among the most sensitive tasks you and line managers within your organisation will face. Common reasons for employment ending include:

  • underperformance;
  • redundancy;
  • ill health;
  • misconduct;
  • the end of a fixed-term contract;
  • the loss of a driving licence necessary for the job;
  • the refusal of a client to have an employee on its premises;
  • retirement; and
  • resignation.
