Capability as a Reason

Key Points

  • Capability is one of the potential fair reasons for dismissal.
  • In order for the dismissal to be fair, an employer will often have to warn an employee and give that employee at least one opportunity to improve.
  • An employer considering a lack of capability or poor performance caused by ill-health must still follow a fair procedure.
  • If a lack of capability is caused by a disability, in order to avoid a claim of disability discrimination, steps must be taken to obtain appropriate medical evidence and advice and thought given to making reasonable adjustments.
