Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. can you give examples of what she is not doing correctly
How many days per week does she work?
If she has been continuously employed at her place of work for less than 2 years then her employment rights will unfortunately be somewhat limited. Most importantly, she will not be protected against unfair dismissal. This means that her employer can dismiss her for more or less any reason, and without following a fair procedure, as long as their decision is not based on discriminatory grounds (i.e. because of gender, race, religion, age, a disability, sexual orientation, etc.) or because she was trying to assert any of her statutory rights (e.g. requesting maternity leave, etc.). I see no discriminatory reasons here so it is not something you should worry about.
If the dismissal had nothing to do with any of the above exceptions then she would not be able to challenge it and her only protection would be if she was not paid her contractual notice period, because unless she was dismissed for gross misconduct, she would be entitled to receive her contractual notice period. If she did not have a written contract in place she would be entitled to the minimum statutory notice period of 1 week. You would either have to allow her to work that notice period and pay her as normal, or you will have to pay her in lieu of notice. You also need to pay her any accrued holidays she has from the start of her employment, which would equal around 4 days.
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
No you need o give her a week's notice AND 4 days pay for the holidays - the two are separate
yes, that is all you need to give her to legally terminate her employment
