Unfair Dismissal

Employment law solicitors – Unfair dismissal

It can also be claimed if your employer did have a fair reason but handled your dismissal using the wrong procedure.

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.

There are five potentially fair reasons for dismissal which include;

  • Conduct

  • 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.
