UNFAIR DISMISSAL CHANGES By: Gordon

From 1 April 2012 employees will not be able to claim unfair dismissal until they have been on the payroll for two years, rather than one year previously. The change is part of a package of employment law reforms designed to give firms more confidence to hire staff – by making it easier to dismiss staff if the appointment does not work for any reason.
As part of the reforms, from April 2013 employees will have to pay a fee to bring a case to a tribunal to try and deter weak or malicious claims. The fees are likely to be between £150 and £1500 depending on the size of the claim. If the employee wins, the fees would be refunded.
Before taking any action it is always worth checking with an employment lawyer to ensure you have followed the correct procedures
