Automatic unfair dismissal

Automatic unfair dismissals are a set of unfair dismissals that you do not need two years of service to claim for at a tribunal due to their serious nature and they include:

  • being pregnant or on maternity leave
  • wanting to take family leave, for example; parental, paternity or adoption leave
  • being a trade union member or representative
  • asking for a legal right, for example; to be paid the National Minimum Wage
  • doing jury service
  • being involved in whistleblowing
  • taking action, or proposing to take action, over a health and safety issue.

Please see the ACAS website on unfair dismissals.
