Wrongful Dismissal and employment tribunals
If you feel that you’ve received unfair treatment at work or believe you’ve been wrongfully dismissed, it’s natural to want to take action. Often it’s possible to resolve workplace disputes directly with your employer but if you’ve already tried this and failed, you may decide to take your employer to an employment tribunal. If this is the case, we can provide all the legal advice and support you will need throughout the process.
Our specialist employment tribunal solicitors help people who have been treated unfairly in the workplace. We’ll clearly outline your options and help you to decide if a tribunal hearing is the right course of action for you.
Employment tribunals are usually made up of a panel that includes an employment judge and two non-legal people who have business experience. A tribunal can be used to address a wide number of issues ranging from discrimination in the workplace to unfair dismissals. Both the employer and the employee may use witnesses to provide supporting evidence and after hearing the case, the panel will reach a decision which is legally binding.
At QualitySolicitors, our knowledgeable employment solicitors are here to support and guide you throughout the entire process. We will explain how best to present your case and will ensure you are fully prepared for the hearing - supporting you with everything from documentation to obtaining witness statements. We’ll clearly outline all of your options from the start so that together we can plan the best course of action. We’ll make sure you are represented fairly throughout the tribunal hearing and will ensure that you always understand what is happening at every step.
However you decide to proceed, it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. You only have three months from the date of your dismissal or the date the unfair treatment last occurred to make an application for a tribunal hearing.
At QualitySolicitors we believe in speaking plain English and always explain everything in straightforward terms. We’re on hand to answer any questions you may have and offer a free, initial over-the-phone conversation so you can find out about the process, costs and timescales.
