Unfair Dismissal

Being unemployed is hard enough, but if you believe you were dismissed unfairly you should speak to a solicitor today.

There are certain circumstances where you may be able to claim from your employers for unfair dismissal. If they have ignored the rules and protocols, or have broken contract terms by dismissing you, you are within your right to have a hearing at an employment tribunal. You may be able to get your job back and/or seek damages for your experience.


Common situations of unfair dismissal:

  • If you ensure you take your entitled rest breaks in a work environment where that isn’t the norm.
  • When people join a trade union, or take part in industrial action lasting 12 weeks or less.
  • If you applied for, or were on, the legal maternity/paternity/adoption leave period.
  • Because you tried to apply for working tax credits you were entitled to.
  • Often, people are unfairly dismissed after ‘whistle blowing’, or exposing wrong-doing in the work place.
  • Requesting time off for jury service.

Employment law is complex, however, if you believe that you were dismissed unfairly, for any reason, an employment solicitor will help you decide whether or not you’re entitled to take your case to court.
