Redundancy & Unfair Dismissal

Employment Law for Individuals

Redundancy may arise from a number of situations, your employer’s business may be closing entirely, or they may be making cuts by closing the place where you work or reducing the number of employees.

We can assist employees facing redundancy by advising:

  • whether there is a bona fide redundancy situation
  • if your employer is following a fair procedure
  • how you should approach a redundancy consultation
  • if your selection for redundancy has been fair
  • on any contractual redundancy procedure and package that may be in place
  • how you can appeal your redundancy
Unfair dismissal

If you are dismissed by reason of redundancy, or for any other reason, we can advise with regard to any claim you may have for unfair dismissal.

We can advise on:

  • whether your employer has followed a fair procedure
  • if the alleged reason for dismissal is a fair reason
  • if it was fair for your employer to dismiss you based on the facts available
  • if a sanction of dismissal was reasonable
  • what potential claims you may have against your employer
  • the potential damages you may recover if your claim is successful
  • reaching a settlement
  • how to commence and conduct a claim against your employer

We are happy to provide a range of advice, from initial advice on your prospects of success and the drafting of your claim form, through to full representation in the conduct of your claim, including representation at Employment Tribunal hearings.

Information on Employment Tribunals - Fees and Timescales can be found here.
