Claims for unfair dismissal can be made in a variety of situations. These are some examples that we regularly deal with:
Redundancy dismissal
You may consider your employers used redundancy as a way of removing you from the organisation, and that the real reason for your dismissal was not redundancy. You may consider the procedure followed was unfair, as others should have been selected before you, or that your employer did not give proper consideration to alternatives to redundancy. It may be you think the decision was discriminatory.
Conduct dismissal
You may consider the decision to dismiss you for misconduct was unfair, as your conduct did not justify dismissal, your employer did not consider the particular circumstances of the case, or that the procedure followed was unfair.
Capability dismissal
If you have been dismissed because of capability, such as illness, you may consider your employer did not allow you sufficient time to recover or that there was another role that you were capable of doing.
