Unfair Dismissal for Employees
Where an employer brings someone’s employment to an end without proper legal justification this can be an unfair dismissal. Some dismissals are deemed automatically unfair while others require closer examination. This is where our team of expert employment lawyers can help.
How we can help you
We provide a wide range of advice to commercial clients, public bodies and individuals alike. This means we’re able to see any employment dispute from both sides, which gives us a broader perspective than many firms of our size. Often there can be a series of events or a procedure applied to an individual which leads up to a dismissal. Sometimes taking advice early can avoid dismissal or help to allow for an amicable outcome from a particular situation.
We can advise you on:
- Grievance processes
- Disciplinary meetings and actions
- Discrimination and inequality
- Settlement agreements
- Employment tribunal proceedings
Employment disputes, whether a grievance or disciplinary issue, can often involve lengthy formal processes. Many clients and their advisers now recognise that alternative ways to resolve disputes are worth considering. We have experienced mediators within our team who can help advise clients about strategies to minimise or avoid conflict. Our mediation service can help you come to a satisfactory and fair outcome or, if necessary, pursue the case further in the form of an employment tribunal.
We regularly represent clients across the UK in cases before the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal. The breadth of our client base and experience means that we are well placed to advise on all aspects of employment law from the basic to the most complex of cases but always recognise that, for the individual involved, every case is personal.
