No employer likes to face litigation but sometimes despite your best efforts, it can happen.
To sue for unfair dismissal, employees generally need at least two years’ service with their ex-employer. However, in certain circumstances there is no qualifying length of service needed (e.g. discrimination/whistleblowing). Getting the dismissal process right is key.
Wrongful dismissal claims can arise where an employee have not been paid for the notice period. Thursfields’ team can support you in handling any terminations advising you of the correct processes to follow to minimise risk to your business.
We work with Thursfields on a retained basis – we work with key contacts who know our business and how we operate. We would be happy to recommend their services.”
