This chapter examines the most important statutory remedy that employees may have on losing their jobs. It begins by exploring the history of unfair dismissal law. It then considers the stages to be completed for employees to make a successful claim. It explains the various reasons for a dismissal that need to be established if a claim is to be made out (or defended as the case may be). It looks at the issue of remedies as well as the effects of legislation in this area and whether it has been successful in its aims.
