Unfair Dismissal Jarmans Solicitors can advise and support you.
What is Unfair Dismissal?
Unfair dismissal is when you have been dismissed from your job by your employer with either with no good reason, not enough of a reason, or when they do not follow the statutory procedures to dismiss you.
How do I know if I can bring a case for Unfair Dismissal?
You will only be able to claim Unfair Dismissal against your employer if you meet a certain number of conditions, including if you are classed as an employee (and not classed as a freelancer or contractor, for example), you have been employed by your employer for over two years and that you can demonstrate this is a legal reason that your dismissal was unfair.
However, there are also certain reasons why dismissal is classed as unfair legally even if you have not been employed for over two years. Such reasons include issues relating to maternity or paternity leave, pregnancy, whistleblowing, asking for your legal rights and being part of a trade union.
What do I need to do to bring a case for Unfair Dismissal?
You should firstly ask your employer to state in writing the full reasons for dismissing you. They have legal obligations to provide this statement to you within two weeks of your request.
You should also raise a grievance with your employer and give them an opportunity to address your concerns as well as exhausting any internal appeal process.
There is also a requirement for you to contact ACAS to undertake a process called Early Conciliation, which is a way to try and settle the case before it is brought to an Employment Tribunal. There are very strict legal time limits in which to bring your claim and you must act quickly.
It’s really important to understand your legal rights when it comes to starting an Unfair Dismissal claim, which is where our dedicated team at Jarmans can assist you from the very start of the process.

From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.
We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
