I don’t agree with my dismissal, what should I do?

Your employer should have given you a right of appeal and this should be your first step. Check your employer’s procedure, because very often the appeal has to be submitted within a deadline.  If you miss the deadline you may still be able to appeal but you should take advice from our employment solicitors.

Your appeal letter is important, because it should set out the reasons why you think your dismissal was unfair. Gotelee’s Employment Team are very experienced in helping individuals prepare their appeal letter, to make sure that it is presented in the strongest way.  Your employer should hold an appeal hearing and we can help you prepare for that as well. We have assisted a number of employees to appeal successfully, because of the strength of the points we have advised them to make.
