Your job is often a central part of your life, you may feel that your identity is determined by it, and you will most likely spend much of your waking life at work. Losing your job can cause you financial problems like paying the rent or mortgage and being out of work you can soon lose confidence and become depressed. You may it difficult to sleep as you will re-play the events of your sacking over and over in your mind. It often begins to dominate conversation with spouses or partners; all this is because of the significance losing your job can have on your life.

Unfair dismissals are about the reasons why you were dismissed – was it a fair reason.
