This post has caused some consternation in the office.

If the decision to terminate is a decision, can the customer not request a revision of that decision under Regulation 4 of the Decision and Appeal regulations?

4.—(1) Subject to the provisions in this regulation, a relevant decision (“the original decision”) may be revised or further revised by the relevant authority which made the decision where—

(a)the person affected makes an application for a revision within—
(i)one month of the date of notification of the original decision; or
(ii)such extended time as the relevant authority may allow under regulation 5;

I think I agree you don’t have to revise it if you terminated it correctly and used the correct terminology etc, but you may revise it if you wish?
