Have you been the victim of the 2 year rule?


It used to be the case up to April 2012 that you needed 1 years service to claim unfair dismissal. This has now increased to 2 years.

Following this increase there was a hike in employment tribunal fees which created even more barriers for people seeking access to justice – this increase in fees has now thankfully been reversed.

Currently an employer can terminate an employee’s contract pre the 2 year deadline without any substantial reason and there’s no comeback for the employee.

Here at best we are campaigning for a reduction in the 2 year rule and for employees to have full employment rights after successfully completing their probationary period.

We want justice for all employees!

If you have been affected by this or have any employment related issues get in touch with Nikki Sharpe our employment law expert

We can confirm that our Sheffield reception will reopen on 24 June 2020.  We are ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our staff and clients by offering an appointment only service.

Please do not attend without firstly making an appointment.

To help us manage this we will be keeping our office doors locked so we can ensure that there is only ever one client in our reception area at any given time.  We would also ask that you attend your appointment by yourself where possible to ensure we are limiting the number of people attending at the office.

If you are unsure of what to do, please telephone our offices on 0114 358 3134.
