How do I know if I have a good case?
Let us have details of your situation as soon as possible. You have absolutely nothing to lose. The service we provide is at no charge and no obligation.

Why should I use Unfair Dismissal Direct Ltd?
As soon as you provide us with details of your claim, we will examine it carefully to determine whether you have a strong claim. Whilst most firms of Solicitors and Employment Consultants would charge you for doing this, we do not – we provide this service to you at absolutely no cost to you at all. If we consider that you have a strong claim, we will pass your claim to an independent firm of Solicitors specialising in employment litigation who will then contact you to discuss your case further. All of the firms of Solicitors on our panel are regulated by The Law Society.

We are dedicated to helping employees who have been treated unfairly at work and our services are exclusively reserved for employees who need our help. We are well established and trusted and are renowned for our expertise and experience, having assisted clients to secure millions of pounds in compensation over the years. We have also assisted clients in groundbreaking cases including a landmark age discrimination case.

Our panel solicitors will discuss the range of options available to you to fund your claim including no win no fee.  Whichever option is best for you, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that the initial work involved in assessing your claim (which can often cost hundreds of pounds if you instruct a firm of Solicitors or Employment Consultants) will have already been done by us at absolutely no cost to you.

Am I obliged to use your panel solicitors?
Not at all. Our service is free and entirely without obligation. If you decide not to use our recommended solicitors, you are free to take your claim elsewhere.

How long do I have to make a claim?
Usually 3 months from the date of your dismissal or from the date of the act you are complaining about. In certain circumstances, the Employment Tribunal may extend this time limit, but this is by no means guaranteed and it is safest to lodge your claim within the 3 month limit.

My witnesses are still employed by my ex-employer. What if they refuse to give evidence?
Don’t worry! Our expert team will discuss all of these tactical issues with you and if necessary, can apply to the Employment Tribunal for Witness Orders to compel even the most reluctant witness to attend the hearing and give evidence.
