Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
As I said I have never had a formal contract on paper
Can he give me a notice at all when it is not my working day?
I emailed me saying : "I wish to confirm your termination of employment on Friday 13 of June 2014 due to lack of finances".
Hello are you there?
He emailed me...
Hi, sorry my connection dropped earlier, have just managed to fix it. Your employer can issue you with notice of termination at any time, whether it is your working day or not. So if you received an email today advising you that your employment is being terminated, that notice can be legally binding and effective. However, he cannot backdate the notice and it should only take effect from the day it is properly communicated to you. The law does not require the employer to issue you with a notice of dismissal in writing and it would also be enough for him to tell you verbally about the dismissal and terminate your employment that way. Therefore, if you were officially told about being dismissed on Friday, 13 June, even if it was done verbally, then that is when the notice of termination would run from. He may have sent you an email to confirm that but the initial notification would still run from 13 June and this email is just a follow up to confirm that.
By law you are entitled to receive a week’s notice for working there so you are entitled to be paid for a week’s work from 13 June. Unfortunately you do not have 2 years’ service with the employer to claim unfair dismissal so you cannot challenge their decision and all you can expect to receive from them is all pay up to date, including the week’s notice and any accrued holidays.
Hope this clarifies your position?
I am entitled to job sicker allowance if I had no full year of service with one employer?
Jobseekers allowance does not depend on how long you have worked with an employer - you need to be looking for work and meet other relevant conditions, you can see these here:https://www.gov.uk/jobseekers-allowance/eligibility
I have been employed for 40 per week, but because of financial condition of the my hours has been reduced to 20 per week. Does my holiday entitlement has changed because of that?
When did this reduction take place?
From 7th of May
When you were employed were you specifically told that you are going to have a guaranteed 40 hours per week?
I had been guaranteed full time
Did you accept the reduction in hours?
I said, that I prefer to work part time for time being. I was told it would last not longer than untill October
Other way I would get a notice at once, so week commencing 6/05
Employer has emailed me proposed working hours and the schedule - about what days
If you agreed to the changes then your hours would have changed formally and your holiday from the date the changes were introduced would also be affected. But we are only talking a month's worth of holidays being affected - from 7 May until your dater of termination
Thanks for your help.
You are welcome Magdalena
