  • Wrongful Dismissal is based on contract law. Any claim for wrongful dismissal will therefore mean looking at an employment contract to see if the contract has been broken.

    The most common breach is where an employee is dismissed without notice or the notice given is too short. An employer can often justify dismissing an employee without notice (Summary Dismissal) if the employee commits a serious breach of the contract.

    Wrongful dismissal claims can be brought in the employment tribunal, county court or High Court depending on the value of the claim.
