“How much procedural fairness is enough?”
Performance Managment & Ending Employment


“It is important to provide employees with procedural fairness in deciding whether to terminate their employment because:

  • It’s the right thing to do, reflects management best practice and helps foster a positive workplace culture;
  • It is a key element in defending any statutory unfair dismissal claim that may be commenced by an ex employee;
  • It often plays a significant part in an employer being able to demonstrate that a termination of employment did not occur for a reason prohibited by the law such as unlawful discrimination or the exercise of a workplace right.”
