Unfair Dismissal

Employment law solicitors – Unfair dismissal

Unfair dismissal is the term given to the action when your employment contract is terminated and your employer did not have fair reason to do so. It can also be claimed if your employer did have fair reason but handled your dismissal using the wrong procedure. As employment law solicitors we have the knowledge and expertise to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.

As a general rule, to claim unfair dismissal, you have to have worked for your employer for at least two years. However, in certain circumstances there are special rules for people who have worked for their employer for less than the required amount of time. By contacting Lexadeen, employment law solicitors, whether in our Bolton or Stoke offices, you can be reassured you will be represented by experts in this field.

  • Conduct
  • Capability
  • Redundancy
  • Breach of a statutory restriction
  • Some other substantial reason

The mere fact that an employer may categorise a dismissal as one of the above ‘fair reasons’ does not mean that your dismissal is automatically fair. It is important to consider the ‘real’ reason as to why an employee has been dismissed and the procedures adopted by an employer prior to this.
