Losing your job can be a very stressful experience, especially if you have not been treated fairly. Dismissal should only be for a fair reason and your employer should follow the correct procedure during the dismissal process. If either of these has not happened, you may have a case for unfair dismissal in an employment tribunal. However, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible because the opportunity to bring a claim has a strict time limit which is usually within 3 months from the termination of your employment. There are also processes in place surrounding pre-termination negotiations (also known as protected discussions).
At Backhouse Solicitors, we are experts in employment law and unfair dismissal cases. We will give you a free, no-obligation 30 minute appointment to discuss your case with you and advise whether you have a potential employment tribunal claim.
