Navigating complex performance-related dismissals

An HR Daily webinar

Even when avenues for improvement appear to be exhausted, it's crucial to follow a procedurally fair process when dismissing an employee for poor performance. This is particularly the case where the employee has raised a psychological injury or a complaint in relation to their employment.

At this HR Daily webinar, Clayton Utz senior associate Amanda Lyras will share guiding principles around terminating for underperformance, including with reference to:

  • Communication and warnings;
  • Performance improvement plans;
  • Psychological injury risks;
  • Employee complaints;
  • Exposure to claims; and
  • Considerations in light of COVID-19.
