Unfair Dismissal

Documents being discussed in meeting

Although we all have ideas about what is ‘unfair’, when it comes to ‘unfair dismissal’ there are rules, lots of rules, to define what is a ‘fair’ dismissal.  It pays to get advice in the majority of cases.

Although generally, you must have been employed for at least 2 years before you can make an unfair dismissal claim, there are numerous exceptions to that 2-year rule.

Compensation in an ordinary case is usually limited to a maximum of a year’s pay.

However, in some cases, there is no upper limit for compensation.

We can explain to you whether your dismissal appears unfair and also provide a good estimate of the potential value of a claim if it is. You can then make an informed decision.
