Invite an employee to a performance dismissal hearing

Key points

  • Where an employee fails to reach or maintain the required standard in the time frame set out in a formal warning, the next stage will be a hearing for the employer to decide whether or not to dismiss.
  • The invitation to the hearing should set out the respects in which the employee's performance is unacceptable and inform the employee that dismissal is a possible consequence.
  • The invitation should explain the employee's statutory right to be accompanied at the hearing.
