Dismissing, Retrenching & Retiring Staff

 

The dismissal and retrenchment of staff can happen from time to time. If this is not managed well, an employer may find themselves with a complaint of discrimination or harassment or an unfair dismissal claim.

Workplace and equal opportunity laws give all staff certain protections when their employment ends. There are rules about entitlements and laws against unfair dismissal.

This section tells employers how to avoid discrimination when dismissing or retrenching staff, and explains what to consider if a staff is resigning or retiring.
