Have you been dismissed without being given the correct period of notice or has a contractual procedure not been followed correctly?
Wrongful dismissal is solely based around whether the terms of the contract have been breached. A few examples of wrongful dismissal include where the employer has terminated the contract without giving the employee the necessary period of notice or there is a breach of contractual disciplinary or redundancy procedure (this list is not exhaustive). If you think you have been wrongfully dismissed then we will be able to support you through the process and ensure you receive the correct amount of damages.

What do I get if it is proved that I have been wrongfully dismissed?
The only remedy available in wrongful dismissal claim is damages. The remedies of reinstatement and re-engagement which are available in unfair dismissal claims are not available here.
Damages are worked out based on the salary and the benefits that the employee would have received had they worked out of their notice period. However many other factors are taken into account for example, this income is reduced by any income the employee has or could have earned during this period and by an appropriate percentage to reflect the fact that the money is received in one lump sum rather than monthly.
