Losing your job or looking like you could is one
of the most unpleasant and stressful experiences we can face.
It is made worse by the very confusing rules
and laws that are meant to protect our employment but themselves
add to the confusion and stress. Having been through
an employment dispute myself I decided to create Iambeingfired in 2004 to
give you independent, unbiased and detailed facts on what your
rights are and how you can protect your job or get the compensation
you deserve if your employment has already been ended.
We have just written a new book about employment law.
You can buy it on Amazon for just £5 and keep it on your Kindle, iPhone or PC. You can buy it here -
Employment Law: A Simple Guide Book to your Rights

We hope that the information on these pages will help and for further assistance please give us your details and we will get an appropriate employment lawyer to call you and give you further advice. We only work with acknowledged experts who will give you free advice about what you should do next.
As your employer will be using a specialist employment
law solicitor, you need to also use a specialist if you are to get
the best results. Don’t use your local solicitor as they are
unlikely to be specialists in employment law and you will be paying
them to learn it. I cannot stress strongly enough that you must
use an employment law specialist if you are to get the best result.
I have done a lot of research into who are the UK’s best employment
law specialists and I am happy to pass this onto you so that you
can find a good employment law specialist to help you.

Answer a few questions and it will tell you
if you have a case. Depending upon your circumstances it will
select the best solicitor and send them your details and the
results of your Evaluator answers.
They can then review this and they will give you
a call to discuss. I have their agreement that they will not charge
you for this telephone advice. In many cases an employer will not
want to go to court and will seek to settle before especially if
you are using a good employment solicitor, so just by starting a
case against them you can often get compensation without even reaching
court. In this case you will almost certainly be asked to sign a
Compromise Agreement by your employer, which you will need an employment
law specialist to review it before you sign to ensure you are getting
the best deal.
I personally have a good understanding of UK
employment law having held a number of Director level roles in
large UK co’s and from also experiencing companies breaching
the rules and laws. To ensure that the information on this site
is correct I have had all of the legal content of this site written
by one of the UK’s leading employment law specialists.
You may feel shocked, disappointed and upset.
The first thing you need to know is that in order to make any
potential claim at the Employment Tribunal in relation to unfair
dismissal, discrimination, breach of contract or wages, then
you must make that claim within three
months of the incident. If you are complaining about dismissal,
then it is three months from the date of dismissal. If you are
complaining about discrimination, it is three months from the
last date active discrimination took place.
If you decide to read no further, please remember
this that you must make the claim within three months or risk
the Tribunal excluding that claim on the grounds that it was
not presented in time.
I have created this site as I believe that
we should be treated fairly by employers and hopefully this site
will help you get the best solution to your employment problems
by understanding the issues and finding a good specialist employment
