Unfair dismissals are the most common category of claims in the Employment Tribunal. There are five categories of reason for a fair dismissal and where an employer fails to dismiss on one of those grounds, then an Employment Tribunal could consider the dismissal is unfair. At the moment, a minimum one year service is needed to bring an unfair dismissal claim. There are, however, a number of other claims which employees can bring without having had a full year’s service and most of those claims don’t have a particular service requirement.
If you’ve “blown the whistle” or complained about discrimination or harassment and have been victimised and dismissed, you may well have a claim regardless of your length of service. These are often complicated claims but some have no cap to the level of damages and it’s worth your while getting our advice.
