Employment Law Advice

Constructive Dismissal & Unfair Dismissal

The threat of dismissal from work is a very real one for many people – and in many cases it is not due to any misconduct or failure by the employee.

Sometimes the termination of employment can be amicable, where compensation in the form of redundancy or a settlement makes it possible for the employee to move on to bigger and better things, or in the very least provide a buffer while looking for another job. Dismissals can also be acrimonious and hard-fought between the company and the individual.

Whatever the circumstances of the dismissal, Else Solicitors can help with sound advice and support rooted in a deep knowledge of specialist employment law and common sense realities.

We can offer advice and guidance on disciplinary and dismissal procedures, which may involve hearings and appeals, as well as redundancy processes and contract disputes.

Even if you are leaving a company by mutual consent we can help you negotiate a suitable exit package and help you protect your rights and reputation.

If you feel you have been unfairly dismissed from work – because your employer has not followed a fair and proper process, or because you were the victim of discrimination or an unreasonable or unwarranted decision – talk to us for impartial and expert help.

Some employers fail to follow the correct procedure when they restructure a business or transfer staff. Many Tribunal cases for unfair dismissal are won because employers have not taken the required steps before dismissal.

If your employer still owes you money following your dismissal, or has breached other terms of your contract, we are able to assist

We also specialise in constructive dismissal cases, where the situation at work has made it impossible for you to continue and you have resigned as a result. In some cases you may be entitled to compensation. These cases are risky and difficult but we can advise you honestly of the chances of your case succeeding. Take our advice before you leave your job.

We specialise in providing a client-centred, thorough and cost-effective service, which can extend to representing you at an Employment Tribunal if required.

If you would like to discuss the options available for your specific situation, please contact Stephen Stewart on 01283 526200 or email
