What Constitutes Unfair Dismissal?

If you are unsure of whether you have been fairly or unfairly dismissed, our experienced solicitors will be happy to provide legal advice tailored to your situation.

Every member of staff who has worked for an employer for two years has the right not to be unfairly dismissed. All companies must act reasonably in letting go of an worker and must follow proper fair procedures. Failure to do so means a dismissal is unfair and means an employee could be entitled to compensation.

If you were fired for any of the following reasons, this may constitute automatic unfair dismissal:

  • Unfair redundancy selection
  • Dismissal relating to business transfer
  • Dismissal relating to pregnancy or maternity rights
  • Dismissal as a result of working time, e.g. taking the breaks you are entitled toDismissal in connection with health & safety issues

There are a number of other reasons which qualify as automatic unfair dismissal. Contact the team of employment law solicitors at Percy Hughes & Roberts to discuss the full range and any potential unfair dismissal compensation claims.

Can I Make a Claim?

If it can be demonstrated to the Employment Tribunal that you have been unfairly dismissed by a former employer then you may be able to claim compensation to reimburse you for loss of earnings.

The team of specialist solicitors for employees at Percy Hughes & Roberts are happy to discuss all the details of your case during a confidential initial consultation.
