As RollonFriday reports, MacRoberts has released a helpful app which allows employers to calculate the cost of giving the boot to useless employees.

The free app quickly estimates the total redundancy entitlement or unfair dismissal costs involved in getting rid of a particular employee - perfect for those spur of the moment dismissals.

The "MacRoberts HR Adviser", which also provides employment law facts and figures "at your fingertips", offers both a redundancy and unfair dismissal compensation calculator.

To calculate a redundancy payout, users simply enter the soon-to-be unemployed person's age, number of full years of service and their weekly pay before tax. For an unfair dismissal, users must enter the disgruntled former employee's age at the date of dismissal, the number of years of full service, their weekly pay before tax, their net weekly pay and weeks without pay.

Folklaw warns poor performing lawyers to watch out if their boss starts entering figures into their iPhone during a bad performance review - they could be headed for the door.
