How do I terminate an employee in Australia?
Terminating an employee in Australia must be compliant with the Fair Work Act 2009. Ensure a valid reason related to the employee's capacity, conduct, or operational requirements. Follow a clear and documented performance management or disciplinary process. Provide necessary notices or pay in lieu of notice. Respect the employee's right to have a support person during discussions. Always maintain clear documentation of the process and reasons. In cases of redundancy, ensure it's genuine and not a disguised dismissal. To navigate complexities and potential claims, consult our employment law professionals.
