Some other substantial reason (‘SOSR’) is one of the potentially fair reasons for dismissing an employee. It can cover a wide variety of situations and can be a very useful tool for employers facing unusual or difficult situations.

Most employers are well-versed in redundancy, capability and conduct dismissals.

However, attempting to fairly dismiss an employee who has no performance issues, has not committed misconduct, or whose role has not ceased or diminished can be fraught with uncertainty.

Presented by expert speaker Paul Jennings, this virtual classroom seminar will provide you with a complete and practical understanding of SOSR.
