What is Unfair Dismissal? 

Dismissal will typically be fair if your employer can show that you were dismissed for one of the following reasons: 

  • Reasons related to employee conduct
  • Reasons related to your capability or qualifications for the role
  • Where the role has become redundant
  • Where there is a statutory reason that prevents the employment from continuing

As well as having a clear and fair reason for dismissal, your employer must be able to demonstrate the acted reasonably during the disciplinary and dismissal process. For example, following correct disciplinary or review procedures in place in the workplace. Where they have failed to do this, you may be able to bring a claim.

If you have been dismissed for exercising your legal rights connected to the following, your dismissal may be ‘automatically unfair’: 

  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Paternal leave, paternity, adoption leave or other time away from work for dependants
  • Acting as a trade union representative or trade union membership activity 
  • Pay and working hours

If you have been dismissed under any of these circumstances, get in contact with our team without delay.
