Unfair Dismissal

Home » Personal Legal Services » Employment Law » Unfair Dismissal

If you have been employed for more than two years, and you have been dismissed for a reason that you do not believe is fair, you could have a potential claim against your employer, and you may be entitled to compensation.


However, there are some exceptions.


In order to be eligible to bring a claim for unfair dismissal, you must (with some exceptions):

  • Be an employee (i.e. NOT self-employed or an agency worker);
  • Have been continuously employed for at least two years prior to the date of dismissal.

If an unfair dismissal claim is successful, the Employment Tribunal can award a successful Claimant the following:

  • Compensation, including loss of earnings and loss of pension rights.
  • Reinstatement
  • Re-engagement

We are experts in Employment compensation, and can advise you through the legal issues surrounding such claims.
