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.
