As a general rule, employees with two years' qualifying service who have been dismissed can present an unfair dismissal claim.
The dismissal of a qualifying employee will be unfair unless the employer can show that the reason (or principal reason) for the dismissal was a potentially fair reason (i.e. capability, conduct, redundancy, breach of statutory restriction or 'some other substantial reason') and the employer acted reasonably in treating that reason as sufficient for dismissal.
We have a wealth of experience of bringing successful unfair dismissal claims on behalf of employees.
