Defending Unfair Dismissal
Dismissing an employee can end up costing your business big money and tie you up in protracted legal fights if the process is not handled correctly from the start.

It is vitally important that employers follow correct procedures and processes when moving to terminate an employee, to protect themselves against claims of unfair dismissal.
Our expert team at Employer Advisors can help your business negotiate the minefield that can be associated with terminating an employee, to avoid the common pitfalls which often see companies forced to pay expensive compensation or be made to reinstate troublesome employees.
Even companies with their own HR departments often get it wrong, and would benefit from expert guidance to effectively manage out an under performing or unsatisfactory employee.

Defending a General Protections claim involving dismissal
Too many employers fall into the trap of dismissing an employee unlawfully, but firing them after they have exercised a workplace right protected under law.
This could mean dismissing an employee because they have made an inquiry about their working conditions, or it could involve dismissing them based on a form of discrimination, such as pregnancy status, race or religion.
These forms of dismissal are unlawful, and can open an employer to uncapped remedies and expensive court action.
