Supporting you in cases of employment disciplinary or dismissal

Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates may be able to help you if you have been dismissed from work, sacked, or suspended.  The grounds on which your employer has made this decision may not be legally valid, so you should always take legal advice to ensure you know your rights.

If you are being subjected to disciplinary proceedings or an investigation at work and you have concerns about how you are being treated, we can investigate this on your behalf and represent you.

Similarly, if you feel you are being treated unfairly at work by your employer, or another employee, and that your position is becoming untenable, we can look into that for you and seek resolution to the problem.

There are three types of dismissal: unfair, wrongful and constructive.  In most cases, Ormrods will be able to tell you quickly if you have a potential claim against your employer.

There are some key principles which must be applied to these types of cases.  For example, you usually need to have been in their employment for 12 or 24 months (depending on when you started your employment) before being able to bring a claim.

Any claim you may have usually needs to be brought to a Tribunal within three months of your dismissal or any discriminatory act.  This is a short time limit, so you should seek legal advice promptly.
