We act on behalf of employees pursuing claims for unfair dismissal and for employers defending such claims.
Generally, an employee who has completed two years’ employment has the right not to be unfairly dismissed.
A dismissal will be unfair unless the employee was dismissed for a fair reason and the employer acted reasonably in all the circumstances.
If an employment tribunal finds that the dismissal is unfair, it can order the employer to re‑engage or reinstate the employee or pay the employee compensation.
Compensation is made up of two parts, namely a basic award which is calculated upon the employee’s age, length of service and pay, and a compensatory award reflecting the employee’s financial loss which would typically include loss of salary, pension, and other benefits.
We are able to advise upon the strengths and weaknesses of your case, the procedure, strategy, representation at the employment tribunal and settlement negotiations.
We have an excellent track record in defending and pursuing unfair dismissal claims for our clients.
