What Is Wrongful Dismissal?

A ‘wrongful dismissal’ is when an employer breaches an employee’s contract.

The most common breaches are relating to notice and pay and examples include:-

  • Dismissing an employee without giving them the required notice under the contract and paying them their notice pay
  • Not giving the employee their full notice period for which they are entitled

If an employee wants to make a claim for wrongful dismissal, it does not matter how long they’ve worked for their employer.
