There is a process to follow which ensures that the reason for a dismissal is fair and also that the fair reason for dismissal has been reached after following a fair process, both of which are key to ensure that there is no claim for unfair dismissal.

This policy relates to issues of capability which are not linked to lack of capability due to ill health. For guidance on ill health capability, you must follow the Sickness Absence Policy and Procedure.
