Q1. A while ago, I had talked to an employee verbally about
leaving the company and it seemed to have been mutually agreed on.
The employee is, however, claiming for unfair dismissal now.
What should I do?
If an employer fails to maintain adequate documentation for all employment-related decisions, it would be difficult for the company to defend itself against a claim for wrongful termination lawsuits when they arise. Employers should maintain a documented termination from the employees. If employers have not received a letter of resignation from a employee, they should secure any proof that employees have made the decision to resign from their position such as phone calls, emails or text messages.
Q2. Do I have pay an employee a paid weekly holidays allowance

Q3. What should I consider when hiring an employee

is whether the expiration date is written on the contract or not.
If the employer has not clarified the termination date on
the contract, a short-term/part-time workers can be considered
as a regular/permanent employee,
not a contractual/fixed-term employee.
