If there was nothing wrong with your job performance but you were fired, you may have an unfair dismissal case. You cannot be dismissed for things such as being pregnant, being part-time, being in a trade union, insisting that you earn the national minimum wage, or protecting yourself from serious and imminent danger.
Dismissal can arise out of a great number of circumstances from amicable to highly acrimonious. Some undergo disciplinary and dismissal procedures which may involve hearings and appeals; for others the dismissal is a feature of discriminatory treatment; others by mutual agreement. Our employment law solicitors can advise on all of these situations.
We can advise you on the value of any potential claim and help you in reaching a fair deal.
Where you are called to attend disciplinary or dismissal hearings, we can advise you throughout the process.
Where you have been dismissed in circumstances that are unfair, you may have a claim for unfair dismissal. We will consider the reasons that your employer gives for dismissing you and look into the process which your employers have used, enabling us to best advise you of your rights; how to challenge your dismissal and what compensation may be available to you.
If you have been fairly dismissed by your employer but your employer has given you inadequate notice or no notice at all (i.e. has not complied with its contractual obligations to you) you may still have a claim for wrongful dismissal.
We know the law, and we know how to make the best of your situation.
