Unfair dismissal advice for employers
As an employer, you will inevitably face the prospect of having to dismiss an employee. You may also be faced with defending an unfair dismissal claim. With the possibility of significant Employment Tribunal awards, taking advice at an early stage can make a big difference.
Our expert employment law solicitors, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, will guide you through the dismissal process as well as advising on other possible options such as a negotiated departure. If an unfair dismissal claim has been made against you then we will advise you on prospects, financial exposure and strategy as well as representing you before the Employment Tribunal, if required.
