Contact our specialist employment law team
If you’re going through a disciplinary, performance management or redundancy process we can advise and assist with challenges to fair process and appeals. We’ll help you strengthen your position by advising on what your employer may be doing wrong.
Alternatively, if you’ve been dismissed, we can advise on the strength of your unfair dismissal claim and potential compensation. We also advise on bringing and conducting an employment tribunal claim.
Create a strategy
Once we understand your position, a qualified solicitor will work with you to create a plan of action.
From the beginning, we’ll provide you with up-front cost estimates based on the work/advice required so you’re clear on your costs. We’ll also keep you up to date throughout.
If you succeed with an unfair dismissal claim at an Employment Tribunal you’re entitled to compensation on the following basis:
The basic award is a statutory award that involves multiplying a) your length of continuous service at the point of dismissal (up to a maximum of 20 years); b) a multiplier based on your age; and c) your gross weekly pay as at the date of dismissal. A week’s pay is subject to a statutory cap which is £538 (correct from 6 April 2020 but subject to change).
If you’ve been dismissed by reason of redundancy, the tribunal will reduce the basic award by the amount of any Statutory Redundancy Pay you’ve received.
