Unfair Dismissal for Employers
Where an employer brings someone’s employment to an end without proper legal justification or due process, 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
The legal aspects we can help you with include:
- Advice on discrimination law and unfair dismissal, including during internal proceedings and defending Tribunal claims.
- Providing our own HR Business Partner to investigate allegations or to provide HR assistance during hearings.
- Drafting, negotiating or advising on settlement agreements.
Our team regularly represent clients across the UK in cases before the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal and, when required, the Court of Session. 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.
We also have experienced, qualified mediators within our team who can help advise clients about strategies to minimise or avoid conflict. Our Chalk Circle service may be of interest to you and your organisation. Through this service we can offer support for clients looking to use mediation, either for specific business issues or to embed a culture within your organisation. We can also provide training in-house for teams on how best to introduce mediation methods into your internal structures.
