what | unfair dismissal.
The right not to be unfairly dismissed has been a part of UK employment law since 1971.
The rules have varied in the years since (including changing the length of time you have to have been employed to get this right & limiting the amount of compensation you can claim) but it remains a core employment protection. Remember that for discrimination length of service is irrelevant: you get protection from day one even during probation.
Our approach to unfair dismissal claims is to seek early settlement so as to avoid the cost & uncertainty of a trial. But if that fails, we’re experienced trial lawyers & can guide & support you through an Employment Tribunal claim.
