Editor’s note
=============
In a new series, getting to the heart of employment law we look
at the realities of what can and cannot be achieved within the
employment relationship. Kick-starting it off is Mark Hunt, head
of employment at Reed Smith who reports on the legalities of
giving an employee the boot for reasons other than performance.
