Unfair Dismissal Stockton on Tees
Have you been affected by unfair dismissal and need a solicitor in Stockton on Tees to help you achieve the best possible outcome? At Askews Solicitors, we are here to guide you through a stressful time with expert legal advice.
Unfair dismissal is when your employer terminates your contract of employment without any reason. It does also include if your employer does have a reason but doesn’t follow the correct procedure to do so. When making your claims you need to confidently demonstrate that you have been treated as a special case or that the procedure of contract termination has been done incorrectly.
Generally, you need to have been employed for at least 2 years before you can make an unfair dismissal claim, however there are some exceptions. At Askews Solicitors, we can advise you on your rights before guiding you through the process. The same goes for how much compensation you are entitled to, normally it is up to a maximum of a year’s pay, but it could vary.
There is a lot of legal jargon involved in employment law, so having a professional solicitor there to help you makes the process a lot easier and you’ll benefit from peace of mind knowing that if your case does go to court, one of our experienced solicitors is there to represent you.
Unfair dismissal claims are time sensitive. You only have 3 months less 1 day from when the event happened so it is best to act quickly. There is no exact time scale of when your case will be concluded as it is dependent on the complexity of your case, but usually a simple case will be within 9 months of issuing proceedings.
