Wrongful Dismissal Solicitors Leeds
A wrongful dismissal case may be carried out due to a fair reason for termination, but the means by which it was applied don’t correctly follow the rules of employment law.
The wrongful dismissal term refers exclusively to an employee being dismissed contrary to the terms of notice within their contract—it shouldn’t be confused with the unfair dismissal process. For example, a wrongful dismissal could be when the worker is prematurely dismissed with insufficient notice, or due to lack of proper grounds for dismissal.
Wrongful dismissal can also occur when no dismissal notice was required, but other conditions of the employment contract weren’t met or if grounds for such action were referred to in a contract where no such grounds existed. Another area of wrongful dismissal could be when an employee wasn’t paid the statutory or contractual amount of notice pay.
