How JMW Can Help

If you are considering making an unfair dismissal claim, you can take advantage of our experience and expertise in this area of the law.

We can help you bring your case to an employment tribunal, where you may be entitled to compensation, another job in the same company - or even reinstatement.

Am I Entitled?

To be entitled to make a claim for unfair dismissal you need to have worked for your employer for two years or more. 

If you are eligible the way the basic claim payment is calculated is quite simple:

  1. For each complete years employment when you were aged uder 22 you can claim one weeks pay
  2. For each complete years employment when you were aged between 22 and 40 you can claim one weeks pay
  3. For each complete years employment when you were aged between over 41 you can claim 1.5 weeks pay

The only restriction is that you can claim for a maximum of 20 years service and the maximum pay you can claim for is £464 gross per week.

Beyond this basic payment you may be able to claim a compensatory award, this can vary dependent on circumstances so it is a good idea to employ a solicitor to put forward a good case for you. 

Compensatory awards are limited as a maximum to a years net salary.
