Unfair dismissal

We advise both employers and employees on unfair dismissal claims and other employment related disputes such as breach of contract/wrongful dismissal, constructive unfair dismissal, pregnancy/maternity related dismissal and discrimination claims.

What is unfair dismissal?

An employee with 2 years’ service (1 year if employment commenced before 6 April 2012), has a right not to be unfairly dismissed. In order for a dismissal to be fair, there must be:

  • A fair reason for dismissal
  • A fair procedure must be followed and the decision must be fair in all the circumstances.

There are five potentially fair reasons for dismissal:

  • Misconduct
  • Capability
  • Redundancy
  • Illegality
  • Some other substantial reason

Even if a fair reason for dismissal is established, an employer must follow a fair process prior to dismissal. A Tribunal will then consider whether the dismissal fell within the “band of reasonable responses” test.

If successful, a claim for unfair dismissal will lead to compensation being awarded by the Employment Tribunal.
