Unfair Dismissal

Unfair Dismissal can be very common. Many people are regularly dismissed without fair reason or procedure. We can advise you on your rights and seek to negotiate proper compensation for you.

In most instances, protection against unfair dismissal arises once the individual has been employed by the employer for a period of two years. There are limited circumstances in which the protection from unfair dismissal may arise earlier.

For dismissals on or after 1 April 2017, the maximum award for unfair dismissal is the lower of 52 weeks’ pay or £80,541.

Usually it is for an employer to show that they have a fair reason for the dismissal, but even if they can show this, the manner in which it is conducted is crucial to the question of fairness.
