Unfair dismissal claims solicitors

Bishopsgate Law employment law solicitors can give advice about unfair dismissal claims and represent claimants at an employment tribunal.

Unfair dismissal law

The law protects UK employees from unfair dismissal.

Employers cannot dismiss any employee who is protected from unfair dismissal unless they have a potentially fair reason for the dismissal and they make a decision which is fair in all the circumstances.

There are some reasons for dismissal that are automatically unfair in all cases however long the employee has worked for their employer. But in most cases an employee must work for an employer for two years before they become protected from unfair dismissal.

For more detailed information about these issues please see our free guide to your rights at work.

Employment tribunal claims

An employee who believes they have been unfairly dismissed may be able to bring a claim before an employment tribunal.

Strict time limits apply to employment tribunal claims, so get legal advice without delay.
