Unfair Dismissal

Unfair dismissal is the term used for a situation where a qualifying employee etc is dismissed from his or her employment on grounds that were unfair.

The most common types of unfair dismissal involve arguments relating to:

  • Conduct
  • Capability
  • Competence
  • Redundancy
  • Retirement
  • Illegality
  • Some other substantial business reason

We can help people who find themselves in this situation pursue their previous employer directly and/or through an employment tribunal.    We can also help by providing advice prior to the termination of employment, such as when they are going through a disciplinary procedure.

Claims for unfair dismissal may also be linked to discrimination, which we can also help with.

Can I claim?

The law imposes certain criteria on various aspects of a case for unfair dismissal and you will therefore need to contact us to enable us to determine whether you have a valid claim for unfair dismissal.

We can help

We can help people who find themselves in these situations as well as many other related situations.

We work with experts who specialise in identifying and confirming such negligence and/or breach of duty and whose evidence will assist in the outcome of your claim.

Where there has been a loss we can pursue your claim through negotiation, mediation and failing these, through the Court or Tribunal system.

What to do next

The first thing to do is to contact us.

Where available we seek to invoke legal expenses insurance that a lot of people have but not a lot of people realise they have.

When you contact us we will do all the work with regard to identifying whether you have it and we will also deal directly with the insurer, which means that you can sit back and as much as possible, relax.

There are some situations in which this may not be available and wherever viable we may be able to deal with a case on a no win no fee basis.   You will be provided with all material you need in relation to a no win no fee agreement should that be necessary.

We have a friendly and dedicated team and we are waiting for your call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 0151 489 9900 (Liverpool) or 01782 20 60 20 (Stoke on Trent).
