Terminating employment

If the employee you recruited turns out to be unsuitable, you need to terminate the employment in an appropriate manner.

If you employed the person using a suitable, written employment agreement, that employment agreement should set out the:

  • conditions under which the employee performance is considered unsuitable (for example, continually late, inability to perform the required tasks, etc.).
  • steps to be taken to attempt to rectify the unsuitability (for example, written warnings, counselling, etc.)
  • procedure for termination.

Without following procedures such as set out above, you increase the potential risk of litigation by an employee for unfair dismissal under Commonwealth or State/Territory legislation.

For more information about unfair dismissals and other employment related issues, a helpful website is www.business.gov.au
