Explanatory Memorandum to Employment Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Date of dismissal

Article 10 amends Article 144A of the 1996 Order by substituting “the date of the dismissal is” for the words “it takes place” (referring to when the dismissal takes place) at each place where they occur in the Article, and then defining the expression “the date of dismissal” in the same way as it is defined for the purposes of Article 144(7). The effect is to ensure that where Article 144A applies in relation to a dismissal with notice the dismissal is treated as occurring when the notice is given and not when the period of notice expires.
