Unfair dismissal solicitors

For expert legal advice or immediate representation for unfair dismissal from work, call the employment team at Redmans Solicitors on 020 3397 3603 or contact us online and we will call you.

Where you have been dismissed in circumstances that are unfair, you may have a claim for unfair dismissal. We will consider your employer’s reasons for dismissing you, and the process that has been followed, in order to advise you of your rights, how to challenge the dismissal, and what compensation may be available to you, whether through the Employment Tribunal or via an out of court settlement.

Our expert employment law solicitors will provide you with the advice that you need to make an informed decision if you’ve been dismissed from your job or if you think that your job has been threatened. It’s not just about explaining the law – we take the time and effort to outline the steps open to you, reassuring you that you’re on the right track regarding the fairness of your (potential) dismissal and your options.

How our specialist lawyers will deal with your unfair dismissal case

Our solicitors are responsive, practical, and expert in matters involving unfair dismissal and employment law. Whether the potential (or actual) termination of your contract of employment relates to misconduct, medical issues, redundancy, TUPE or any other issue we can advise you on your legal position and how to best address potential legal issues with your employer.

Redmans’s dedicated team of expert lawyers has extensive experience of employment dismissal claims. We recognise that our clients can be in very different circumstances in relation to dismissal, from amicable to highly acrimonious: some undergoing disciplinary and dismissal procedures that may involve hearings and appeals; some where there may be allegations of discrimination and bullying; and sometimes where the employee is leaving their employment by mutual agreement but require advice on the negotiation and drafting of a severance package.  Your employer has an obligation under the Employment Rights Act 1996 to treat you both procedurally and substantively fairly when disciplining you or dismissing you. A proper and unbiased procedure must therefore be carried out and your dismissal must be within the reasonable range of responses in the circumstances. Your employer must carry out your dismissal with reference to the ACAS Code of Practice, must make consistent decisions when disciplining or dismissing, and must have a genuine reason for disciplining or dismissing you.

We offer representation and advice at all stages of an Employment Tribunal, including the issuing of your claim, at Case Management Discussions, Pre-Hearing Reviews, and at Employment Tribunal hearings (whether they relate to liability or remedy).

We can advise you of the value of your claim in your circumstances, and help you in reaching a good deal. We can also negotiate termination packages on your behalf and offer tax advice. Where you are called to attend disciplinary or dismissal hearings, we can advise you throughout the process.

Funding options

Redmans normally represent clients on one of the following funding bases:

  • Insurer-funded (where your insurer will pay for the cost of your claim – click here to find out more about insurer-led funding)
  • No win no fee funding (where Redmans receive a percentage of your Employment Tribunal award or settlement, but we receive nothing if your claim doesn’t succeed – click here to find out more about no win no fee funding)
  • Hourly rate (where Redmans charges on an hourly basis for our services – this is often appropriate if you’re case isn’t appropriate for no win no fee funding and/or if you’re not covered by legal expenses insurance)

No win no fee funding available

As detailed above, Redmans offer no win no fee funding agreements to clients in appropriate unfair dismissal cases.

    Chris Hadrill was recommended to me when I found myself in need of a solicitor at very short notice. He contacted me almost immediately to arrange a call. Chris handled my case in a professional and timely manner and kept me notified throughout. Chris inspired confidence and made me feel I was being cared for. If ever I'm in need of legal representation, I would not hesitate to contact Chris. And will gladly recommend him to family and friends.

    I received legal advice on a redundancy settlement agreement from Redmans Solicitors and was very impressed by the quality of their service. Chris Hadrill is highly experienced in settlement matters and was especially understanding of the particulars of my case, going out of his way to ensure that it was resolved quickly and with the utmost professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending Redmans to anyone in need of employment advice and settlement resolution.
