If you feel your employer ended your employment unfairly, either because of the reason why you were dismissed, or the process they used, then you may have been unfairly dismissed and might be able to complain to an Employment Tribunal.
What is unfair dismissal
There are several ways your dismissal could be unfair:
- your employer does not have a fair reason for dismissing you (eg if there was nothing wrong with your job performance)
- your employer did not follow the correct process when dismissing you (eg if the employer has not followed their company dismissal processes)
- you were dismissed for an automatically unfair reason (eg because you wanted to take maternity leave)
Potential fair reasons
Potentially fair reasons include the following Redundancy; Conduct, Capability, Breach of a Statutory Requirement, Some Other Substantial Reason.
Even if your employer does have a potentially fair reason to dismiss the dismissal can still be found to be unfair if it was not reasonable for the employer to dismiss in all the circumstances of the case.
If you have been dismissed for any of the above reasons you should seek advise as soon as possible. Remember strict time limits apply claims must be made within three months of the last day of employment.
