For Businesses

It is the responsibility of the employer when dismissing an employee to ensure it is considered ‘fair’ and complies with the Employment Rights Act 1996. This means there are procedures and policies that need to be in place to make sure that an employee is dismissed for the right reasons and it’s not considered an act of direct or indirect discrimination.

Our expert solicitors will help you prevent the expense of tribunals and court proceedings by working with you on a consultancy basis. We will ensure your disciplinary procedures give you the best possible protection from the unnecessary stress and expense of tribunals.
Our comprehensive services for businesses include:

  • Ongoing consultancy
  • Disciplinary procedures review and drafting
  • Policy drafting
  • Expert mediation
  • Defence in tribunals

For Individuals

If you feel that you have an unfair dismissal case and you have worked for your employer for 2 years or more, you could be entitled to take legal action against your former employer.
Our specialist unfair dismissal solicitors will offer you expert guidance and support for your individual case. We will help you remove the worry and stress of taking a case to tribunal and fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf.

Typical unfair dismissal cases where you may have an unfair dismissal claim include:

  • Asserting a statutory employment right (e.g. rest breaks, holiday pay);
  • Whistleblowing;
  • Union activities;
  • Dismissal as part of a business transfer;
  • In connection with health

If you have been employed for less than 2 years, there are circumstances where you could still make an unfair dismissal claim, so it’s important to speak to a specialist unfair dismissal solicitor to get free and impartial advice about your individual case.

  • From the outset Abdul reassured me, talked me through everything and put my mind at ease that I was in the best possible hands at a time of stress and panic. The process from our initial meeting was seamless and Abdul put plans in place for me to receive the best possible outcome in court with some ground work from myself. I honestly can't thank Abdul enough for his services, although he was there in a professional manner he also showed great understanding of my situation and helped me through a difficult time.

  • You certainly know what you are doing in court, your knowledge, experience and the delicate way in which you handled the magistrates really made the difference. It was my first time in front of a magistrate and it was clear to see that it could so easily have gone either way.

  • I was put in touch with Abdul at DFR solicitors by a colleague. He did not only put me at ease but also was in touch with my wife and explained the process etc. to her. It was not a pleasant experience attending court etc. but it was made easier thanks to Abdul's professionalism, thoroughness and reassurance. Abdul is a specialist in this field - it is all he deals with.
