This unfair dismissal claim template provides you with a format that correctly addresses the statutory formula for unfair dismissal in the Employment Rights 1996. The right not to be unfairly dismissed is a statutory right provided by section 94 ERA 1996. This right is qualified by the requirement of two years continuous service, and proof of dismissal.
In an unfair dismissal misconduct claim, once you have cleared these hurdles, the responsibility shifts to your employer to show that you were dismissed for misconduct and that they acted fairly in dismissing for that reason. That is where your fight starts, and this template comes in handy. Please note that this is a template only. It does not come with legal guidance, strategies or a checklist. It only covers the information that you put in section 8.2 of the ET1 Claim form. For a comprehensive guide with the law on unfair dismissal, this template and a checklist see Unfair Dismissal Claim [Misconduct] Template with Guidance
