Hot Topic - SOSR Dismissals

30th Nov 2017 12:30pm-2:00pm

This was the last Hot Topic session for 2017.  Some Other Substantial Reason” (SOSR) is the last in the list of potentially fair reasons for dismissal in the Employment Rights Act – and it’s the catch-all term covering all other significant and serious reasons for termination.  In this session Paul demystified the SOSR dismissal and worked  through the scenarios in which dismissal has been found fair outside of the usual grounds of conduct, capability and redundancy including relationship breakdowns at work, serial grievers, non-standard reorganisations and dismissals that are required for regulatory reasons.
