An employee who has been employed by the same employer for the required amount of time has the right not to be ‘unfairly dismissed’. This means that their employer can only dismiss them for one of a number of specific fair reasons and the dismissal must be fair in the circumstances (ie. the employer must follow a fair procedure and the decision to dismiss must be one of a range of reasonable responses available to a reasonable employer).
Some reasons are deemed to be “automatically unfair”. It is important to seek advice as soon as you are aware that there may be an issue. For some, but not all of these reasons, the employee does not need the minimum period of continuous employment mentioned above.
If you believe that you have been, or shortly will be, dismissed unfairly and would like advice on this, please telephone our specialist employment solicitor, Fiona Hewitt, on 01296 318513 to discuss this further.
