An employee is viewed as having been wrongfully dismissed when their contract of employment has been terminated without notice, either contractual or statutory notice, in circumstances where termination without notice is not justified, for example the dismissal was not for gross misconduct. An employee can take a claim to the Industrial Tribunal on those grounds for damages (compensation for loss) as a result of the wrongful dismissal.See:
