Some Other Substantial Reason (SOSR) Dismissals
This subfolder includes general Guidance Notes and Letters to use where the intention is to dismiss an employee for Some Other Substantial Reason (SOSR).
Employees have the right not to be unfairly dismissed by their employer. In accordance with the Employment Rights Act (ERA) 1996, there are various potentially fair dismissal reasons including where there is “some other substantial reason” to justify the dismissal of the employee.
The SOSR provision can cover a wide variety of situations, although whether or not the reason for dismissal falls within its scope will depend upon the facts of each case. The Guidance Notes on Some Other Substantial Reason Dismissal provide more information on this subject.
