Podcast: Dismissal; and making a job offer

On this week's XpertHR Weekly, we discuss popular employment law myths around dismissal, including those relating to: an employer's right to dismiss an employee instantly if he or she has committed an act of gross misconduct; and employees "dismissing themselves" by not turning up to work. We also discuss what employers need to be aware of when making a job offer to a prospective employee, including: the ban on asking candidates about their health prior to offering them employment; and how to deal with a negative reference. 

Presenter Jeya Thiruchelvam is joined by Clio Springer and Bar Huberman. Edited and produced by Luke Smith.
