Facing a dismissal or redundancy process can be worrying, especially if your employer’s decision is unfair or discriminatory. Our solicitors can help you make a wrongful or constructive dismissal claim against your employer or negotiate an early settlement agreement to avoid a claim.

Your employer can only dismiss you or make you redundant if they have a genuine reason to do so. We’re experts in our field and could help you resolve a dismissal or redundancy issue through the ACAS early conciliation process. If that isn’t successful we’ll help you claim through an Employment Tribunal or High Court.

We’ll make sure your rights and reputation are protected while also helping you get the compensation you deserve.

Contact our employment solicitors today by calling 0207 650 3999 and we’ll discuss your situation with you.

What Services Do We Offer?

We can help with:

  • Unfair dismissal claims if you’re dismissed without a fair reason
  • Wrongful dismissal claims if your employer dismisses you and does not follow the correct procedure
  • Redundancy issues like protecting your rights if you’re selected for redundancy and ensuring your employer’s redundancy process is fair
  • Settlement agreements to negotiate an out-of-court settlement with your employer
  • Constructive dismissal claims if your employer breaches your contract so badly that it forces you to resign.

Dismissals are sometimes an attempt to unlawfully push you out of your workplace. We work with many people who are dismissed because of victimisation or discrimination by their employer. This is unlawful and our employment team can protect your rights and make sure your employer is held accountable for their actions.
