Wrongful Dismissal should not be confused with Unfair Dismissal, as wrongful Dismissal is based on contract law and the employee’s contract of employment. Any claim for Wrongful Dismissal will, therefore, mean looking at the employee's employment contract to see if the employer has broken the contract.

There is not a fixed amount of damages in which you can claim for wrongful dismissal. It all depends on the individuals pay and any other benefits they might have received had their employer not breached the contract. For example the use of a company car, any bonus payments the individual might have missed out on, although claims for bonuses can be difficult to prove, especially if they’re discretionary in nature.
