If you have been dismissed from your job and you believe you might have been unfairly dismissed please call us for a free consultation.
Your employer might not have had a good enough reason to dismiss you or they might have failed to follow a fair procedure. If this was the case the employer might have actually unfairly dismissed you.
If you have been unfairly dismissed you may have the right to bring a claim against your employer at the Employment Tribunal . If you win you will be awarded financial compensation.
You may also have a claim for constructive dismissal. This happens when as an employee you have walked out / left your job / resigned in protest to the actions of your employer. Perhaps you have been humiliated by a senior manager in front of colleagues or shouted at.
Perhaps you have been the victim of sexual harassment and you could not stand it any longer and you resigned. Perhaps you were over burdened with work and could not cope with the work load.
In these cases the employer will have been in fundamental breach of your contract (it doesn’t matter if you don’t actually have a written contract) and what amounts to a breach of the contract can be almost anything. In these cases the employee has had enough and resigns from the job.
The employee is allowed to bring a claim for unfair dismissal arguing it was the employer’s bad behaviour (the fundamental breach) which the employee could not accept and so resigned.
The employee can bring a claim for unfair dismissal at the Employment tribunal.
Please note there are strict time limits in these cases. A claim must be brought within 3 months of the termination of employment otherwise the employee might lose the chance to bring a claim.
So, if you have been dismissed in this way or resigned due to the actions and breach of contract of your employer please ring us as soon as possible for a free confidential consultation.
We will advise you on your options and might be able to represent you on a No Win No Fee arrangement.
