Getting Justice for you Is Our Priority
When will a dismissal be unfair?
In order to establish unfair dismissal, it is important to prove certain things. First, you must have in fact been dismissed. A dismissal may be obvious – where an employee has been fired. Equally, you may have been dismissed if you have been made redundant or have felt obliged to resign in difficult circumstances. Similarly, if your employer opts not to renew your fixed term contract, this may amount to a dismissal.
Secondly, it must be shown that the dismissal was in fact unfair. Certain dismissals will automatically be unfair. For example, your employer lets you go because you’re having a baby or because you lawfully participated in trade union activities.

During the life of the employer-employee relationship, circumstances may arise that lead the parties to consider terminating their relationship. Alternatively, businesses may be struggling and might be forced to reconsider their staffing needs. These are achieved through the use of what are called Settlement Agreements.
