Unfair dismissal is a distressing experience that can have far-reaching consequences for employees. Fortunately, in Scotland, there are legal remedies available to protect your rights and seek justice if you’ve been unfairly dismissed. SGT Law Scotland is here to guide you through the process and ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
Understanding Unfair Dismissal in Scotland
Unfair dismissal occurs when an employer terminates an employee’s contract without a valid reason, or when they fail to follow proper dismissal procedures. In Scotland, employees are protected by robust employment laws that are designed to safeguard their rights.
Your Legal Rights in Scotland
If you believe you’ve been unfairly dismissed, it’s crucial to be aware of your legal rights and options:
- Review Your Employment Contract: The terms and conditions outlined in your employment contract play a vital role. Review your contract to understand your rights and any clauses related to termination.
- Contact SGT Law Scotland: The first step to take when you suspect unfair dismissal is to get in touch with legal experts like SGT Law Scotland. Our team of experienced workplace harassment lawyers in Scotland can assess your case, provide legal advice, and determine the best course of action.
- Early Conciliation: In Scotland, before taking your case to an employment tribunal, it’s mandatory to go through the early conciliation process provided by ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation, and Arbitration Service). This process aims to resolve the dispute without the need for a tribunal.
- Employment Tribunal: If early conciliation doesn’t lead to a resolution, you may proceed to an employment tribunal. SGT Law Scotland can represent you and help build a strong case to prove that your dismissal was unfair.
- Compensation: If your case is successful, the tribunal can award you compensation, which may include financial compensation, reinstatement, or re-engagement, depending on the circumstances.
