Can I get my job back in a dismissal case?
The tribunal can order reinstatement or re-engagement if you win a dismissal case. However, in practice, re-employment rarely happens. Even when tribunals make such an order, employers commonly refuse to implement it. If your employer refuses to comply, you have to apply again to the tribunal. It will probably award you additional compensation in such a situation.
If your employer still refuses to comply, you have to pursue the matter in the County Court (Sheriff Court in Scotland). Ultimately, your employer cannot be forced to take you back, though you will be due additional compensation. If this cannot be recovered, you have to pursue the matter in the County Court.
