The claimant was dismissed by reason of gross misconduct and in particular.
When, if ever, it is appropriate for an employer to argue frustration of contract?
For example, if an employee is given a prison sentence of 3 or more years for an offence that is no way connected with their employment, can an employer claim frustration rather than have to go through the statutory dismissal procedure using "some other substantial reason" as the potential reason for dismissal?
How can we change the wording in our handbooks?
If you hire an employee on a 2+ year fixed term contact, are they entitled to redundancy if/when they are dismissed at the end of the contract? Is there any way to avoid this if an entitlement exists?
Are there any restrictions on how long someone can be on a fixed-term contract? How often can you extend?
Can an employer change any policies and procedures within the organisation, without consulting with staff, as long as it is communicated to them afterwards?
Can we offer employees a car allowance where previously we provided a company car?
Like many organisations we may have to reduce staffing costs. Is it lawful to terminate employees on fixed term contracts first or must they always be considered equally with full time permanent staff?
Is it possible to include a clause in employment contracts that allows the employer the possibility to ask the employee to use their accrued annual leave during his/her notice period?
By law is an employee entitled to paid time off for doctor/dentist appointments?
Can an employee give notice of resignation when on maternity leave?
