Unfair/Constructive Dismissal Claims
If you have been dismissed from your job or you have been forced to resign because of the behaviour of your employer, then you may have a claim for unfair dismissal (this is called constructive dismissal if you are forced to resign).
You usually have to be employed for two years to bring this claim (if employed after 6 April 2012) but there are exceptions to this rule. There is also a cap on compensation of 52 weeks’ gross pay or £80,541 – whichever is the lower. Again, there are exceptions to this for instance if you have been dismissed for whistleblowing or for health and safety reasons.
We can advise you on the potential value of your claim, the cost of bringing it and the procedure to follow. We are experienced advocates and so not only help you submit your claim and all of the preparation work such as documents and witness statements but also represent you in Employment Tribunal if this becomes necessary.
We are also very experienced negotiators and will always try and negotiate a favourable settlement for you, making use of our excellent relationship with ACAS.
