If you dismiss an employee for a reason other than one allowed by law or fail to follow the correct procedure for dismissal, this may lead to a claim for unfair or wrongful dismissal.
Compensation for a successful unfair dismissal claim can be substantial. Regardless of whether a claim succeeds, the costs of defending it are likely to be significant – and this does not account for additional costs such as management time and damage to staff morale and your company’s reputation. To best protect your business, you should work closely with a team of employment law specialists on any unfair dismissal matter.
How can Partners Employment Lawyers help?
Hina Belitz and her team of solicitors and barristers regularly advise and represent businesses facing claims for unfair dismissal or wrongful dismissal. We understand that you need quick, expert guidance to help you avoid significant loss of your company’s money and time.
We will always collaborate with you to resolve the issue before it can progress to Employment Tribunal proceedings, as this is often the most cost-effective and least time-consuming approach. Our team can help you negotiate a quick, discreet and satisfactory settlement with even the most difficult employees.
In our experience, clients rarely realise just how detailed and forensic Employment Tribunals are. Under the legal obligation called discovery, you must disclose all relevant evidence that is not privileged or protected in some other way to the Tribunal. These days, this now includes social media communications and emails.
If your case does end up before a Tribunal, we will use our in-depth knowledge of how Employment Tribunals work to get you the best possible outcome.
