Unfair and Wrongful Dismissal Claims

We have represented senior employees in their claims for unfair dismissal in the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. We are also experienced at dealing with high value breach of contract (wrongful dismissal) claims in the civil courts. These clauses can range from notice and bonus disputes, through to court proceedings to prevent dismissal.

Employees have three months less one day from the ‘effective date of termination’ to bring a claim for unfair dismissal.

Recent experience:

  • Representing a client in their claim for unfair dismissal following the termination of their employment on the ground of redundancy
  • Advising, litigating and negotiating a claim for unfair dismissal where the dismissal was discriminatory (the claim included a complaint of discrimination)
  • Successfully negotiating an uplift in damages in respect of an employer’s failure to follow the ACAS Code of Practice
  • Negotiating a high value notice pay claim pre-litigation for an employee without a signed contract of employment
