If you are an employee and feel that your employer has dismissed you unfairly then you may be able to make an Employment Tribunal claim.
You will usually (but not always) need to have been employed for at least a year to make a claim (two years if your employment started after 6th April 2012). You will need to be able to show that you have been dismissed, and your employer will be required to show that there was a fair reason for dismissing you and that it was reasonable to do so in the circumstances. In most instances a claim must be made within 3 months of you being dismissed.
If you are successful, a tribunal can make a Basic Award of up to £13,920 depending on your age, what you were paid and how long you were working for the employer, as well as a Compensatory Award of up to £74,200 to reflect your lost wages and benefits.
We offer a fixed fee initial consultation where we look at your particular circumstances and tell you how we can help. We will also advise you on the best and most affordable way for you to fund your claim. These include paying privately, within a budget, legal expenses insurance and ‘no-win no-fee’ arrangements where appropriate.
