Unfair Dismissal Thornaby
Are you looking for unfair dismissal advice in Thornaby? At Askews Solicitors, we are here to advise you during a stressful time and help you decide whether it is worth pursuing an unfair dismissal claim.
To make a claim, you generally have to have been employed for over 2 years, however there are some exceptions to this depending on your situation. Similarly, the amount of compensation you could receive is around 1 year of your pay maximum, but this isn’t always certain. You can also be eligible to make a constructive unfair dismissal claim if you have had to resign based on your employer’s actions making you feel that you were unable to work.
Unfair dismissal is when your employment contract is terminated by your employer with no reason, or your employer does have a good reason to cease your employment but doesn’t follow the correct procedures.
If you do think that you have been unfairly dismissed we recommend acting as soon as possible. For these types of cases, you can only make a claim within 3 months less 1 day from when the event happened.
There is no accurate time frame given to unfair dismissal cases concluding, however for a simple case it is around within 9 months of issuing proceedings. If your case goes to court, one of our qualified solicitors can represent you in court.
Employment law can be complicated and confusing, especially when there is a lot of legal jargon involved. Whether you were dismissed from a small start-up or a large corporation, our team is here to guide you through the process and make sure you understand everything from start to finish so that you get the best possible outcome.
