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.


How we can help you 

If you believe that your dismissal is unfair then our specialist 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.

Although our employment law solicitors are based in Edinburgh and Glasgow we are able to provide unfair dismissal and constructive dismissal advice over the telephone or via a video call throughout the UK.

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.

Our approach to fees

As well as providing clear advice we guarantee that we will be transparent on costs.

We understand the importance of providing fee clarity and value for money.  In most cases we can meet with you and provide you with an assessment of your situation, including our view as to your options and making a recommendation, for a fixed fee. We're also able to carry out Employment Tribunal work on a fixed fee basis.

Please note that we are not able to provide free advice nor do we work on a no-win, no-fee basis for this sort of advice.
