EAT confirms that applications for interim relief should be heard in public
Dismissals and Redundancy
Everyone has a right to be treated fairly at work. Sometimes people are dismissed for no fair reason – perhaps their hiring manager has moved on, their face no longer fits, or they have upset the Managing Director. If you feel you have been unfairly dismissed, by engaging us we will vigorously negotiate the terms of any exit on your behalf, to ensure you are paid what you are owed and that your reputation is protected.
If your employer is seeking to dismiss you, they require a fair reason for doing so, and they must follow a transparent and proper dismissal process. We will ensure that this is the case.
Sometimes the prospect of dismissal arises because there is a redundancy. Redundancy can be an unsettling experience. However, with the right guidance, and by identifying the key questions to ask your employer during redundancy consultations, it can be carefully navigated and even turned to your advantage. We will ensure that your employer follows the fair and proper process which you are entitled to.
If your employer does not have a fair reason to dismiss you, or if they fail to follow a fair process when handling your dismissal or redundancy, you may be entitled to compensation. By drawing the attention of your employer to their own failings when handling your unfair dismissal, we will aim to achieve a severance payment. In cases in which your former employer refuses to consider settlement, we will then consider fighting for your compensation through employment litigation in the courts and tribunals.
