Dismissal

First, use the information earlier in this guide to make sure you know what equality law says your employer must do.

This section looks at three issues:

  • reasons and procedures
  • if you are a disabled person and your employer wants to dismiss you
  • if you are a disabled person and your employer wants to dismiss you because they say you can no longer do the job

Fair and unfair dismissal

This guide only tells you about equality law. There are other laws which your employer needs to follow to make sure a dismissal is fair, in the sense that the proper procedures have been followed. You can find out more about these from Acas, whose contact details are found within the Further sources of information.
