Please see our dedicated page for information regarding redundancy.
We understand that the prospect of losing your job can cause huge strains on your life. Being made redundant can be emotionally and financially challenging. In certain circumstances, if there is not a genuine redundancy situation or if the employer did not follow a fair procedure, you may have a potential claim.
If you are being made redundant, or are unsure if you have a valid claim, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team for expert advice on how best to proceed. Employment solicitors are instrumental in securing fair redundancy packages and favourable settlement agreements. We will provide expert advice on legal entitlements, negotiate on behalf of individuals, and ensure that you receive appropriate compensation and support.
You may well be asked to sign a settlement agreement. You should always obtain legal advice before signing a settlement agreement, as you are effectively signing away your rights to claim for unfair dismissal. Please see our page on settlement agreements for more information.

Please see our dedicated page for information regarding unfair dismissal.
When an employer dismisses an employee without good reason and/or without following the appropriate process, the employee can potentially raise a legal claim for unfair dismissal.
As a general rule (with some exceptions), an employee must have a minimum of two years’ continuous service to bring a claim for unfair dismissal.
If your employer invites you to a disciplinary hearing, we can advise you on your rights.
The conclusion of a disciplinary procedure can range from no action being taken through to termination of employment. If the outcome involves termination of employment, you may be able to challenge the dismissal on the basis that it was potentially unfair. It is important that you seek legal advice at an early stage, so that we can best advise you on your legal position and options, as well as time limits that apply.
