The Team should have the rights to do so.
The scrum master is not allowed to hire or fire people.
According to my understanding of the Guide, first the Scrum Master together with the Dev Team should talk somehow and try to manage the situation. Nonetheless, the dev team must be capable to self organize and therefore, ask for the member's removal of the team.
Someone with a lot of practical experience can confirm or correct us with much more competence =)
