Employment law changes have really been slow coming through since the biggest major change in 2013. Lots of changes cam about then – including the intoduction of Fees to bring a claim in the trinunal. It was quite hefty too for a complex claim with more than one jurisdiction. For example, unfair dismissal claims are very complicated, there can be all sorts of side issues, whether it is allied to a gross misconduct claim or if there is a discrimination claim attached to it.
All these matters need a really careful legal approach, it is so easy to think you can bring a simple claim of unfair dismissal but there are many diffent issues within that head of claim. Whether notice was given or whether the claimant had or had not read and practiced their contract of employment and how cessation of this can have catestrophic effect on the outcome of a case.
