Do you feel you were dismissed from work unfairly?
If your employment is terminated without a valid reason, you may be able to claim for unfair dismissal. A claim for unfair dismissal can be pursued if the reason for an employee’s dismissal is deemed to be unfair. You will need to prove that your employer has broken the code of conduct and share your experience openly. But don’t worry, our team will examine your case and support you through the entire process. We advise that you make a claim straight away, as you only have three months from the date of your dismissal to start the process. Holding off will only cause delays in your claim.
Can I claim for unfair dismissal?
If you have worked for your employer for at least 2 years you can make an unfair dismissal claim. As an employee, some legal rights come into effect after this time meaning you can make a claim, however there are some exceptions to this rule. If your employer failed to follow procedure, did not take the correct steps, or dismissed you for reasons deemed unfair in the eyes of the law, you could have a legitimate claim. Fair reasons can include:
• Breach of stature
• SOSR (some other substantial reason)
If you feel that you were dismissed for anything other than the reasons listed above, your claim can be pursued and taken to the employment tribunal. To get expert advice about your situation from our employment law team call us on 0800 644 8648
