SOLICITORS HELPLINE 0345 515 0362

 

Our unfair dismissal solicitors deal with claims for unlawful dismissal, discrimination and harassment using the no win no fee* scheme. We deal with a wide range of employment law matters and also give advice on compromise agreements and on redundancy including sham redundancy which may become a claim for unfair dismissal in the event that the redundancy was not genuine or that the redundancy was not properly dealt with by the employer. If you have a potential employment claim then our solicitors are able to fully advise you. Our initial advice is free and without further obligation.

Unfair dismissal occurs when an employee is dismissed for reasons that are unlawful and unreasonable. What is unlawful and unreasonable can be a complex legal issue and after hearing your personal details our unfair dismissal solicitors will be able to advise you on whether or not you have a potential claim that is likely to be successful. Our initial advice is not charged and you are under no obligation if you take our initial advice and decide to proceed no further.

Employment Tribunal

Employment compensation claims are dealt with by our specialist unfair dismissal lawyers using the no win no fee scheme and in the event of initial negotiations failing to produce a result we will make an application to the Employment Tribunal within three months of the determination of employment. You pay no legal fee unless you are successful in your claim. The employment Tribunal is empowered to either award compensation or to instruct the employer to reinstate the employee to his previous employment with no degradation is position or salary.

Employees are protected by the common law which includes case law and by a wide range of legislation including the Race Relations Act, the Disability Discrimination Act and the Sex Discrimination Act. Time is of the essence in employment claims and there are strict time limits that must be observed in all compensation claims intended to be dealt with before an Employment Tribunal. You should not delay in taking legal advice on unfair dismissal or your opportunity to claim compensation may be lost forever.
