Hello, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied. As she is not an employee, rather a contractor she is not protected against unfair dismissal. Even if she was an employee she needs 2 years to have such protection so in any event there is no unfair dismissal issues in this case. So you are able to terminate this person’s employment simply by giving them the contractual notice period they are entitled to, which in this case is 2 months. So as long as the contractual notice period has been met and the person has been paid for it then you are legally able to terminate their employment. You would be expected to pay them their normal wage for that period though so bear that in mind.
