Employment issues

Unfair dismissal advice for employees

You may have been unfairly dismissed either because there was no fair reason for your dismissal or because your employer failed to follow the correct dismissal procedure.

If you've been forced to resign because of the conduct of your employer then you may be able to claim constructive dismissal.

If you believe that your dismissal is unfair then our team of employment lawyers based in Edinburgh and Glasgow can help. Even if you haven't been dismissed you may feel that the writing is on the wall, in which case the sooner you come to see us, the more options you're likely to have.

Clear advice

We'll discuss your situation with you and provide clear advice as to whether your dismissal is open to challenge and, if so, how much compensation you should expect to receive. We'll also advise you on the best way for you to get this compensation whether by way of a negotiated settlement or by raising an Employment Tribunal claim.
