Unfair dismissal is a complex area of employment law.
You have 3 months from the date of termination of your employment within which to lodge your claim with the appropriate Employment Tribunal.
You will need two full years’ service before you are eligible to bring a claim. For some types of dismissal there is no length of service requirement. These may include ‘automatically unfair’ dismissals or dismissals which are discriminatory.
There are various types of dismissal:
• Termination by the employer
• Expiry of a fixed-term contract
• Forced resignation
• Resignation by the employee which amounts to constructive dismissal
We can advise you throughout your claim, prepare your claim form (ET1), prepare your case including bundles of documents and witness statements and act on your behalf in presenting your claim to the Employment Judge at any interim or final hearing in the Employment Tribunal. Alternatively we can act on your behalf to negotiate a suitable settlement of your claim.
Our specialist employment law solicitor will help you through what can be a difficult process.
