What is unfair dismissal? 

Unfair dismissal happens when your employer terminates your contract without having a legally fair reason to. The term is also used when your employer terminates your contract of employment, however, handles the dismissal incorrectly. There are laws to protect you against unfair dismissal. 

Can I make an unfair dismissal 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 including future loss of earnings.

What should I do if I have been unfairly dismissed? 

If you want to take your case to an employment tribunal, your case must first be registered in early conciliation with ACAS, this step must be done before a claim is submitted to the Employment Tribunal.  Once you have the ACAS early conciliation certificate you will be able to submit your claim to the Employment Tribunal. 

There are very strict deadlines to bring a claim of unfair dismissal in the Employment Tribunal, and which can be extended by the ACAS early conciliation. However the general limit to bring a claim in the Employment Tribunal is 3 months, that is, 3 months less one day from the date of termination of your employment.
