A toolkit for termination
This note is a guide to Practical Law Employment materials on termination of employment.
Dealing with redundancy can be daunting for both employer and employee. Employers need to ensure that they follow the correct procedures and apply them fairly. Employees have a number of rights in a redundancy situation including rights relating to consultation on an individual and sometimes collective basis. The Toolkit, Redundancy ( www.practicallaw.com/0-503-6697) provides key maintained content on collective and individual redundancies, including links to relevant materials and some external resources.
A dismissal based on a person's age amounts to unlawful direct age discrimination unless the employer can objectively justify it or can establish that being below that age is "an occupational requirement". The Toolkit, Retirement since 6 April 2011 ( www.practicallaw.com/1-505-0838) contains materials relating to the abolition of the retirement age and its implications in practice.
Defending a claim in the employment tribunal
The Toolkit, Employment tribunals: defending a claim ( www.practicallaw.com/5-524-6589) provides a guide to the materials that will assist those advising a respondent defending a claim in the employment tribunal, including links to relevant materials on the employment tribunals rules of procedure. The Toolkit, Appealing a tribunal decision to the EAT ( www.practicallaw.com/1-507-5928) sets out materials relevant to appealing a tribunal decision.
