For example, that there has been a fair reason for dismissal and that the proper procedures were followed and fair for you, the employee.

If you feel as though you may be eligible for compensation for unfair dismissal, you could receive anything starting from £430 per week (depending on weekly salary), unless you have already received a redundancy payment.


If an employer wishes to dismiss an employee it is important that the correct procedures and laws are followed. For example, the employee must be allowed to work through their notice period which was set in their contract. Unless you have taken part in gross misconduct, you should be able to claim compensation for unfair dismissal if your employer has not followed these rules. If you have been in the position of an unfair dismissal, a claim should be made within three months of the date that your employment ended. If your claim for compensation for unfair dismissal exceeds £25,000 it will need to be brought before the high court and time limitation is extended to six years. However, all cases are individual and time limits can vary depending on the circumstances.
