If you are an employer or employee involved in an unfair dismissal claim, you need the backing of an expert employment lawyer to guide you through every step of the way.
If you are an employer, we can take you through the steps that must be followed where such a claim has been brought. Similarly, if you are in the position of having your employment brought to an end, and you feel the circumstances have been unfair, our high calibre employment solicitors in Perthshire and Tayside can fight your corner.
For employees, it is important to note there are strict time limits for making a claim to an Employment Tribunal; you must make your complaint to the tribunal within three months of the effective date of termination (where practicable). Get in touch with us straight away to ensure you meet these time limits.
A dismissal will be deemed fair if the employer can show that the reason for dismissal was related to the employee’s conduct, capability or qualifications for the job; because the employee’s role had become redundant; a statutory duty or restriction prohibited the employment continuing; or where there was another substantial reason justifying dismissal. The employer must also show that they acted reasonably; for example, by following the correct disciplinary process. We can assist employers looking for guidance on correct procedure, to ensure you are working within the law every step of the way.
In most circumstances, an employee must have at least two year's continuous service before he or she can make a complaint to an Employment Tribunal unless the employee believes he has been discriminated against, or has been dismissed due to maternity.
