Employment Law Q&A
I think I’ve been dismissed unfairly. What can I do?
- If you believe that your dismissal was unfair, you may want to make a claim to an employment tribunal. Before you do so, it will be important for you to be clued in on the legal grounds for dismissal, and take your situation fully into consideration. This Includes considering whether for example you were discriminated against? Did your employer act within the ACAS Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance matters? These are all matters you should discuss early on with on one of Talbots Law specialist employment solicitors to firstly assess if you have a claim and secondly to ensure you adhere to the strict time limits for making a claim.
Should I have a contract of employment?
