What evidence do I need for an unfair dismissal claim?

If you have been employed for 1 year or more (2 years or more if you started on or after 6 April 2012), you have the right to bring a claim of unfair dismissal. There are however several exceptions to the requirement to have completed one (or 2) year's service including unfair dismissal due to pregnancy, equal pay issues, health and safety reasons, union membership and activities, raising a whistleblowing complaint or for enforcing a statutory right.

Everyone wants to get along in the workplace, but unfortunately disputes can still occur. When problems can not be resolved, then the matter can be taken to an employment tribunal.
