An unfair dismissal is when an employer terminates an employee’s contract or forces an employee to resign, in a ‘harsh, unjust or unreasonable’ manner. If the employee has a successful claim, they will be entitled to remedies such as compensation or reinstatement.
Have I been dismissed?
A person has been dismissed if:
- They have been terminated at the initiative of the employer
- They have forcefully resigned due to the actions of the employer
If you have been dismissed, and feel as though this was harsh, unjust, or unreasonable you should seek legal advice imminently. The Employment Law Team at Coutts appreciate that this can be difficult to navigate, however, we are willing and ready to assist you when required.
