If you think your dismissal was unfair you might be able to challenge it.
It is important to understand what unfair dismissal means. It depends on the individual situation but the employee might have been dismissed fairly if:
- There was a fair reason
- The reason was enough to justify dismissing them
- The employer followed a full and fair procedure
If you feel you have no choice but to resign because of something your employer has done, you might be able to claim for ‘constructive dismissal‘.
The legal term is ‘constructive unfair dismissal’.
Wrongful dismissal is when an employer has breached an employee’s contract. It is usually to do with notice or notice pay.
Examples of wrongful dismissal can include:
- Dismissing an employee without giving them a notice period or notice pay
- Not giving someone the full notice period they are entitled to
