Unfair dismissal

The need for specialist advice:

As an employer, you will probably at some point have to dismiss an employee.

If you have been accused of unfair dismissal, an Employment Tribunal could order you to pay more than £80,000 to your employee. Speaking to a specialist employment solicitor at the outset can save you a great deal of time, money and aggravation.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

Unfair dismissal claims can be settled without formal court proceedings. Our experts have wide-ranging experience of settling unfair dismissal claims before they reach a hearing and we have succeeded in having a number of claims struck out altogether.

If you want to fight a claim, you should contact our employment team at the earliest possible opportunity. This gives us more time to prepare the best possible defence because you must prove that the accusations are untrue. To help you do this, we will investigate the claim thoroughly and work with you to establish the facts.

We also provide legal advice to ensure your business is operating in a way that will avoid any unfair dismissal claims in the future.
