If you have been dismissed in circumstances that you think are unfair, you may have grounds for an unfair dismissal claim
If you have been employed for more than two years, you have the right not to be dismissed unfairly. This means that your employer must have a fair reason, such as redundancy, conduct or capability. It also means that they must have followed a fair procedure.
There are several ways a dismissal could be considered unfair:
• The employer’s policy and/or procedures were not followed.
• There was no fair reason for the dismissal.
• The reason for dismissal was automatically unfair e.g. you were pregnant or on maternity leave.
If you feel your employment has been terminated unfairly, we encourage you to speak to one of our Employment team as soon as possible.
They will listen to the particulars of your case and provide advice on:
• Whether you have a claim.
• How strong your claim may be.
• How much compensation you could be awarded in an Employment Tribunal.
• How to bring a claim, and the deadline for doing so.
• How much it could cost to bring a claim.
