Even HR managers make mistakes when firing people, or so says one employment lawyer. HC outlines HR's three most common dismissal mistakes (and how to avoid making them).

    I don't think that the three bullet points capture every reason for dismissal. What about circumstances of unacceptable behaviour where the employee has received multiple warnings (for example, repeated lateness or failure to follow a process) - they may be dismissed on a subsequent warning, but this is neither serious misconduct, nor is it a reason relating to performance or capacity.

      D, performance includes performance outcomes and behaviour. If an employee is receiving warnings even if that is due to lateness or repeated failure to follow a process this constitutes poor performance. Within those 3 points a range of scenarios would fit.
