UNFAIR DISMISSAL AND REDUNDANCY 

DIFFERENT SIDES, SAME PRINCIPLES 

It may be prudent to contact a solicitor if you are contemplating a dismissal or a redundancy, and wanting to get it right. Or you may be facing dismissal, or involved in a redundancy consultation, and wanting to know how best to put your side of the story across. 
 
And once the deed is done, you may want to make an unfair dismissal claim and know what your chances are. Or the tribunal papers may be all set to hit your desk, and you may need to know whether to defend the claim every step of the way or come to terms. 
 
The Covid-19 era will have its own effect on dismissals. They may not always involve an open and shut case when the post-furlough workplace may be very different indeed. Whether your aim is to construct a case for dismissal or oppose disciplinary allegations, to devise or handle an effective appeal, to maximise a claim or to keep it down, or to strike a sensible deal, this is just the time when you need our experience. 
 
We know and understand both sides of the argument – legal, emotional, practical. Whichever side of the dispute you are on, we can help. 

NAVIGATING THE MINEFIELD 

"What are my chances?" Always a sensible question. We know the principles that a tribunal would follow if the claim went the distance. And there could be a lot more in need of attention – time limits, further information requests, ACAS communication. 
 
Not forgetting two fairly crucial prior steps: - 
 
ACAS Early Conciliation procedures – a potential game changer all round 
Pre-termination negotiations – important to get this one right
