Dismissal occurs when a contract is terminated with or without notice, a fixed term contract ends and is not renewed or an employee leaves, with or without notice, when they are entitled to do so because of the employer’s conduct. You’ll find here information on termination of contract, unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and constructive dismissal.

There are other pages for discipline and grievances and redundancy.
