Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Sorry I had some connection issues earlier and could not respond. From hat you have said I would not say this is really an unfair dismissal, from a legal point of view that is unlikely to be something which would amount to a reason that would make the dismissal unfair. You may have felt uncomfortable being in the same group as your boss and it could have affected your performance but that in itself would not amount to an unfair dismissal. So if that is all you are basing your arguments on then you will have a rather weak case I'm afraid.Also what you can claim for would depend on what luck you have had with finding a job since being made redundant, how is that going?
What you can reasonably ask for will depend on the strength of your case so in the circumstances it would be relatively low, if anything. In this case it would be best to commence the negotiating process and let the employer come forward with an offer, which you can then use as a starting point to try and negotiate on something a bit higher. But if they have taken legal advice and know their prospects of defending the case are strong, they could offer very little or nothing at all and allow you to go all the way to tribunal, where you would have to show that the dismissal was unfair.
