Unfair Dismissal - The Law pertaining to Unfair Dismissal

The following is a very brief outline of the law relating to unfair dismissal.

Were you dismissed from your employment for an unfair reason?

There are only 6 potentially fair reasons for terminating someone's employment. However, an employer will often allege that one of these reasons applies, when in fact the dismissal was unfair.

These potentially fair reasons are:-

a) Capability

If an employee does not have sufficient qualifications to do the job or if they are deemed to be incompetent, it may be fair to terminate their employment.

b) Conduct

Sometimes the employee's conduct gives the employer good reason to dismiss. This would include theft, fighting, abusive behaviour and other inappropriate conduct. In some circumstances, it may include misconduct.

c) Redundancy

If the employer's business (or part of it) has ceased to operate or has moved to a different place or if the needs of the business have changed, there may be a genuine redundancy situation. In such cases, it may be fair to terminate the employment.

d) Breaking the law

If it would be against the law to continue someone's employment, for example where a driver loses his licence, it may be fair to dismiss.

e) Retirement

If you have reached retirement age, your employer can dismiss you fairly as long as a fair procedure and the law is followed.

f) Any other substantial reason

This is very wide and covers a number of employment related reasons, not included above. These would include a business restructure, an employee's refusal to carry out legitimate work tasks.

Did the employer follow an unfair procedure?

Even if the termination of your employment was for a potentially fair reason, the dismissal may be unfair if the employer did not follow a fair procedure.

A fair procedure should, at the very least, include the following:-

  • The employer should carry out a reasonable investigation before making a decision;
  • The employer should arrange a disciplinary hearing at which the employee is given the opportunity to state their case;
  • The employee should be notified of the hearing and the reasons for the hearing in writing;
  • The employee should be given the right to bring a colleague to the hearing;
  • The employer should consider other lesser forms of discipline;
  • The employer should notify the employee in writing of the termination of employment and the reasons for it.
  • The employee should be notified of the right to appeal against the decision.

Compensation

If you have been unfairly dismissed from your employment, you should be entitled to compensation. This is made up of a basic award and a compensatory award

The basic award is determined by your age and length of time you have been in employment. It is calculated in the same way as a redundancy payment.

The compensatory award is intended to compensate you for loss of employment, that is the financial loss resulting from the dismissal. This includes loss of wages up to the date of the Employment Tribunal hearing, as well as future losses.

In some cases, the Employment Tribunal may order the employer to re-instate you into your previous employment.

Very often, an employment dispute can be settled by way of a Workplace agreement.

If you believe that you have suffered an unfair dismissal then please complete your free legal advice enquiry form on the left, to request help from a qualified and professional employment lawyer, or click here. Our online service is available 24 hours, 7 days.

Constructive Dismissal

If you are forced to resign because of the way your employer has treated you, you may be able to claim "Constructive Dismissal". If this applies to you, we recommend that you complete your free legal advice enquiry form on the left, to request help from a qualified and professional employment lawyer, or click here. Our online service is available 24 hours, 7 days.

What is constructive dismissal?

Constructive dismissal is the term used where you resign in response to your employer's breach of the employment contract. In this situation, your resignation is treated as a dismissal. You were effectively forced out of your employment by your employer’s conduct.

For a constructive dismissal claim to succeed, you may need to show that:

  • Your employer was in breach of the employment contract;
  • You resigned in response to that breach; and
  • You did now wait too long before resigning.
  • Your employer’s conduct must be sufficiently serious to amount to a significant breach of the employment contract.
  • The employer’s conduct may be a single serious incident or a series of less serious incidents.

Do I need to raise a grievance?

The law does not require you to raise a grievance but generally speaking, you should do so before bringing a claim for constructive dismissal. A failure to raise a grievance may mean that any compensation that you might subsequently be awarded could be reduced.

Even if you have already resigned, you should still raise a grievance before bringing an Employment claim.

Compensation for constructive dismissal

If you are successful in your constructive dismissal claim, the tribunal will usually order your former employer to pay you:-

  • A Basic Award (calculated by reference to how long you have been employedyou’re your weekly earnings); and
  • A Compensatory Award (calculated by reference to your lost earnings resulting from being out of work).

You should be aware that you are under an obligation to keep your losses to a minimum – for example, by looking for another job. If you find another job quickly, any compensation payable to you will be reduced by the amount of money you have earned during the period which would otherwise have been your notice period.

A Court may reduce compensation payable to you if it finds that you have not taken reasonable steps to seek alternative employment. This will depend upon a number of factors including your experience and the state of the job market in your line of work. The compensation will be reduced by an estimated amount, representing the income that you should have been able to earn during the notice period.

Redundancy

What is redundancy?

A redundancy situation exists where:-

* an employer's business, or part of the business, has ceased to operate; and/or
* the business has moved to a different place; and/or
* the needs of the business for work of a particular type to be done has ceased or diminished.

Redundancy Procedures

Your employer must follow a set dismissal procedure before making a redundancy.

If you are at risk of redundancy, you are entitled to a written statement, explaining why you are being considered for redundancy. You should also have a meeting with your employer to discuss the proposed redundancy, as well as the opportunity to appeal.

Your employer must use selection criteria that are fair, objective and non-discriminatory. In some situations, you should also be considered for alternative employment within your employer's business.

If your employer does not follow the proper procedures, any dismissal will be an automatically unfair dismissal and you may be entitled to compensation.

Redundancy pay

If you are made redundant, you should be entitled to redundancy pay. The amount of a statutory redundancy payment depends on an number of factors including:-

  • how long you have been in employment; and
  • you age; and
  • your weekly pay.

If you would like help regarding redundancy please complete your free legal advice enquiry form on the left, to request help from a qualified and professional employment lawyer, or click here. Our online service is available 24 hours, 7 days.

You will need the advice of a qualified legal representative, such as an employment lawyer, for the workplace agreement to be valid.

Redundancy Contracts

Arrangements prior to termination: These include the specific amounts of money you will be paid in salary, holiday leave, expenses, bonuses, commissions, etc.

Payment in lieu of notice: Lawyers practising employment law may be able to negotiate the duration of your notice period, but often this is stipulated in your employment contract.

Termination payment: Employment Lawyers may be able to negotiate the amount of this payment and can advise you on the tax implications involved.

References: How the employer responds to any future requests for references about you can be specified in the agreement.

Restrictive covenants and confidentiality: Employers may ask you to refrain from certain actions, such as poaching employees, disclosing confidential information or intellectual property, or soliciting the company's customers or vendors
The terms of a workplace agreement can affect your financial and professional future for years to come. Please do not sign an agreement without first seeking competent legal advice. In most cases, the fees are paid for by the employer.

Gender Pay Gap

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 09:58:39 -0500

In today's society a women can do almost anything they put their mind to except make the same amount of money as a man. Just about everyone has heard this statement in the media; Men earn more money than women in our country. It is a fact that many more women are working outside the home compared to previous generations. It seems impossible that in this day and age when so many advancements have been made with equal rights, that a person would make more money based on their gender. However the stats are sure to grab our attention: Women make 78 cents on the dollar compared to men. How do economists arrive at this conclusion? Do other countries experience this gender pay gap as well? What can we do to decrease this number? These are questions that are all important in understanding this issue that affects our female citizens, their families, and our economy as well. We must take action as a nation to decrease this gap and insure that our working citizens are paid fairly regardless of their gender.

Social Media In Pre-Employment Screening: When Did Personal Judgemental Prejudices Replace Validity?

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 15:09:57 -0600

It is clearly evident that social media is woven into our everyday lives and technology enables immediacy in terms of sharing personal information on line. Our everyday social activities are in the public arena, warts and all, and consequently open to scrutiny. However, how pervasive is this scrutiny in organisational recruitment? Legislation is in place to guard against discriminatory practices, however, it is perhaps inevitable that recruiters would be tempted to examine the digital lives being led by potential recruits to their organisations. It is an easy opportunity to attempt to get an insight into the character of the individual who has applied for a post; an attempt at enhancing cultural fit decision-making. However, this approach can be highly problematic.

Even though HR consulting has been around for years many employers did not want anything to do with it. After all there is a reason why they are call independent business owners.

But that was then and this is now and one could say that it is a very unwise choice for employers today to not comply.

And that applies when a person is fully healthy. What happens when a medical condition impacts a person's ability and capacity to continue in his or her employment?

Oral Agreement by Directors of a Company to Share Profit With a Person: Effect of Failure of Company

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:07:11 -0600

From time immemorial, most persons (especially businessmen who share the same interests) have engaged in various commercial activities based on oral terms that were never written in any formal agreement or written contract. Usually, these persons will not encounter any problem in enforcing their respective rights and liabilities because of the mutual trust and understanding among them. However, there are likely to exist a dispute if a party fails to perform his or her own undertaking under the oral agreement. Of course, when this disputes arises, the law will have to intervene to right the wrong based on the relationship that truly existed among the parties. Hence, the question that arises is: can an aggrieved party still enforce his rights based on what all the parties allegedly intended? This paper is scenario based. It thus presents the facts at hand as a scenario. It thereafter raises the legal issues arising from the scenario; and apply the law to the legal issues raised therein.

OPM Federal Disability Retirement and the Other Federal Programs

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 07:17:22 -0600

The concept behind Federal Disability Retirement is a simple one: Given a level of proof, the disability should attach only to the extent of the specific job which a person cannot do; otherwise, the Federal or Postal employee should, upon being approved for OPM Disability Retirement benefits, be allowed to remain productive in some alternate capacity, so that he or she may continue to contribute to the social welfare of the country as a whole. Social Security Disability, in contrast to Federal Disability Retirement benefits submitted and approved by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, provides that one is essentially considered to be disabled not only from the regular profession or job which you engaged in immediately before being determined to be disabled but, further, you cannot do other kinds of jobs because of your medical condition.
