Employment Disputes

Eldridges will represent an employer or employee in any dispute in the work place, and offer practical advice to either side.

Employers who behave fairly and reasonably, give proper warnings and follow statutory procedures, are entitled to dismiss employees who are incompetent, misbehave or whose services are no longer required. However, the processes involved are not always straightforward, hence the growth in claims to Employment Tribunals. Unfair dismissal is the largest source of complaint with awards of up to £63,000 a possibility (potentially unlimited in cases of discrimination) for those employers judged to be in the wrong.

Eldridges can advise on the steps that should be taken before dismissing employees. We can also appear on your behalf should you suffer a claim that goes to an Employment Tribunal.
