Employment Law of the UK and the Unfair Dismissal Concept
This 22 page paper reports and explains unfair dismissal as outline in the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Employment Rights Act 2002 and the changes made in the interim. There are any number of contexts for an unfair dismissal claim, for example, claims related to maternity leave or to trade union activities. Some of the multitude of Codes of Practice are discussed, such as those ACAS issued in 2000 regarding Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures. Many of the changes in the 2002 Act were actually enacted prior to this Act, such as the qualifying years of service for unfair dismissal claims and the increase in the maximum awards. Tribunal cases are used to illustrate why a tribunal may find the dismissal fair or unfair. Data regarding the number of cases going to tribunals are reported as a justification for changes in the procedures. The writer comments on whether the 2002 Act was more advantageous to the employer or the employee as compared to the 1996 Act and its subsequent revisions. Data are included.
