When your employment comes to an end, especially when you believe that you have been dismissed unfairly this may be devastating and have repercussions on your finances as well as your family life.
Every case is unique and it is important that there is a clear chronology of events so that proper legal support may be provided. You may have got dismissed after going through a disciplinary process or you may have got dismissed on the spot or because you have been discriminated against. Whatever reason your employer gave you, you may want to challenge this and have an employment solicitor look at your case in detail and guide you on the next steps.
You may have been faced with a redundancy or your employer has decided to sell the business. If these situations were not handled fairly and in accordance with employment law you may have a claim.
Advice will be given to you on the best way forward and options will be discussed. A number of claims are settled out of court so this could be the best route. However there are many cases that have gone all the way to Tribunal and yours could be one of them. The final outcome would depend on the specific circumstances and most importantly on what you would like to achieve.
In the event that you are going through a disciplinary process assistance may be provided throughout and if this leads to a termination an option may be a settlement – employment legal advice and negotiation on the settlement agreement may be provided.
