What is wrongful dismissal?

Wrongful dismissal occurs when an employee is terminated in breach of the terms of their contract of employment, such as when notice has not been given or has been given inadequately. An employee may bring a claim for wrongful dismissal in a court of law.

Have you been dismissed from your job incorrectly?

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.

Examples of wrongful dismissal include where the employer has terminated your contract without giving you the necessary period of notice or there is a breach of contractual disciplinary or redundancy procedure. There can be other reasons too.
