Unfair dismissal

Hiring and firing may be just business; but sometimes the loss of a job is deeply personal. Unfair dismissal is the bedrock of employment law and a vast and often complex area.

In the modern economy it’s not always clear who is an employee, with a right to make a claim. Sometimes it’s unclear whether there has been a dismissal at all. Dismissals can be for a variety of reasons, from misconduct to redundancy. It’s essential that an employer follow a fair procedure, and there are many pitfalls. Successful claims can lead to reinstatement, reengagement or payments of compensation, the exact calculation of which requires expertise and skill.
