If you are employed and have been dismissed or resigned, there may be a claim for unfair dismissal. There is a three month limit from the date the notice was given or the date the notice expires, therefore it is of the upmost importance for us, at Hattin Solicitors, to ensure that we bring your claim within the time limit.

The evidential burden is on the employee, however the employer has the burden of showing the dismissal was for a potentially fair reason. In order to be a fair reason it must fit into the following categories:

a) Capability
b) Conduct
c) Redundancy
d) Illegality/Statutory restrictions
e) Retirement
f) Some other substantial reason

Please contact us at Hattin Solicitors, so we can discuss the merits of your case.
