Losing a job can be one of the most difficult things we face. We worry about our finances, damage to our careers, and even how our future and quality of life will be affected.
Yet whilst circumstances sometimes mean employers have to make difficult decisions that lead to job losses, they can only terminate your employment under certain conditions. If your employers fail to meet these conditions then you may be able to bring a claim against them for unfair dismissal.
It may be the case that your job position in the business will simply no longer exist in the near future. If this is the situation, then your employer will likely offer you a redundancy package. Again, however, your employer can only legally make you redundant under specific circumstances. If they do so then you’ll need to know whether what you’re offered is everything you’re entitled to under the law.
Having your livelihood taken from you is a serious matter, and at Robertsons Solicitors we’re here to give you a helping hand through this difficult time. Our team is composed of experienced employment law professionals with expertise in both unfair dismissals and redundancy issues.
Whether you wish to investigate the lawfulness of your dismissal, ensure your redundancy package is giving you what you’re owed, or to pursue a tribunal claim for either, we are here to help you from start to finish.
