I have recently been looking at the Determinations delivered by the Labour Court and it is amazing how many employers, even where they have a good case for dismissal, have had awards made against them because of their lack of fair procedures. Attached to this blog is a list setting out what an employer must do before they can successfully defend a claim for unfair dismissal. Equally, employees threatened with disciplinary proceedings are fully entitled to insist on these procedures being followed in order that they have a fair opportunity to respond to the allegations made against them. On my observations, at least 50% of unfair dismissal claims are settled or are found against the employer because of their lack of fair procedures. It is essential that these be complied with, and at Marcus Lynch we can assist you in all employment litigation.
