Unfair Dismissal & Constructive Dismissal Solicitors
There are many different reasons as to why an employee could be dismissed from work. The termination could be as a result of disciplinary procedures, discrimination, bullying or harassment; the dismissal could even be mutually agreed between the parties.
There are, however, occasions when an employee is unfairly dismissed as a result of the actions of their employer. The onus is on the employer to show that it terminated employment for one of the lawful reasons and that it acted reasonably in treating that as a sufficient reason for termination.
Even if an employer believes it has reasonable grounds to terminate, if an Employment Tribunal is of the view that no reasonable employer would have dismissed in the same circumstances, taking into account the size and administrative resources of the employer, then the dismissal will be unfair. Even in cases where dismissal is justified, it can still be unfair if the employer does not follow the correct procedure, or where the employer has failed to carry out a proper investigation in cases of gross misconduct.
There may also be occasions when an employee feels they are forced to resign as a result of the behaviour of their employer. In those circumstances if the conduct of the employer was so bad that it would constitute a fundamental breach of an express or implied term of the employment contract, then there could be a potential constructive unfair dismissal claim.
