How Do I know If My Dismissal Was Unfair?

You may feel you have been unfairly dismissed if you are shocked at the decision or you are unsure of why you have been dismissed. If this is the case then you should seek advice as soon as possible so that the situation can be addressed and you can be fully informed of your rights. No two cases are the same so it is important that you consult with our solicitors to establish better your individual circumstances are likely to be found to be unfair.

Causes of Unfair Dismissal

There are a number of reasons why you could have been unfairly dismissed. If you suspect that your employer hasn’t given you a valid or true reason for your dismissal then it could have been due to one of the following:

  • You asked for more flexible working hours
  • You became a member of a trade union
  • You took part in a legal service which you were legally required to attend such as jury service
  • You applied for maternity or paternity leave or exercised some other ‘family friendly’ right
  • You were forced to take compulsory retirement
  • You exposed wrongdoing or malpractice in the workplace
  • Your employer’s business was recently taken over

If you suspect that any of those reasons played a part in your employer’s decision-making then you may have the right to claim that your dismissal was ‘automatically unfair’, and you should certainly take legal action.
