In certain countries, the qualifying period is around 1 year.
The employment tribunals are established to handle cases like this and in situation where you have been found to have been truly unfairly treated, your job can be reinstated or some other form of compensation may be awarded.
Even if it is a case of political opinion or affiliation – you will be provided the full right to go to an employment tribunal to seek redress and justice.
In unfair dismissal claims, you must make the claim to the tribunal within the period of three months of being laid off.
