Under Section 29(1)-(3) of the Employment Rights Act an employer may terminate an employee for “some other substantial reason”, as the fourth and final justified clause for dismissal. Commonly referred to as SOSR, the inability to capture all specific scenarios under which termination would be considered fair, is understood.
However, given concerns around unfair dismissal and the number of cases that have presented at the Employment Rights Tribunal, employers have questioned how to treat to various aspects of the ERA. This workshop will specifically explain what constitutes “some other substantial reason” and seek to clarify how SOSR should be applied.
