Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
I just want to know what i can legally do
To make my employer pay me for the 2 weeks ii already mentioned i did not get a writen notice yet
When i will get an answer ? Is there a time you are online?
Hi, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied to my initial query. Before I provide my full response can I just clarify – were you officially dismissed by the employer or did you decide to leave yourself?
I was dismissed but did not get notice in writing she just send me a text
She also said i should get all the relevant documents by folowing day .that was friday .today is tuesday still did not get them . Makes me think she never sent them
Do you think the dismissal had anything to do with your pregnancy, or was it just due to the circumstances, which everyone else found themselves in too?
I don't know what to think but to be honest she gave my coleagues no choice she even was rude to them so they got tired and left .. but now they are planning to open again but i wount be entitled to smp wich makes me think that it has a lot to do with my pregnancy.
She interupt my 26 weeks of working there
After telling us the shop was closed she wanted to have meetings with the staff but separate dates for everyone.making difficult for them to attend it
It is hard to believe that she had a plan from the beggining but why else dissmiss me and after open the shop again? I never got an explanation for the notice and it was only mentioned in a text after i complained my wages are late
I have never got a letter of dismissal or anything..
She only said she sort out my payroll and payd me what she owend me 56 pounds. I mean is it not normal to give notice then stop payments?
I told her i was not payd for allmost 3 weeks then she said " Ok Daniela sorry about that I will tell jay and get it sorted. We have decided we are selling shop as we have no other option, if we don't sell we are faced with bankruptcy. when we do sell the shop we will put your name forward and make sure they know what an excellent worker you are.We need to give you notice from this week. I will speak to you later and explain, I just have to take max to airport .
I waited 3 days and asked her again what does she mean about notice and she sayd the reason i havent been payd is that shes waiti g fir pay
Waiting for payroll to finalise what they owe me
You should not be treated detrimentally due to your pregnancy so if the employer’s actions had anything to do with that or an attempt to interrupt your entitlement to SMP. This could amount to discrimination based on pregnancy and/or gender, which is unlawful. Whilst there ,may be genuine reasons for terminating your employment, if there is anything that may suggest these were the actual reasons for this, then you do have a case to take forward.
Before you consider any formal action it is always best to try and resolve this with the employer directly. You can approach them and even mention that you are considering taking formal legal action, in the hope that they resolve this amicably with you.
However, if this does not happen, you have the option of taking the matter to the employment tribunal for a formal resolution. This is a forum where employees take employment-related complaints and they can hear a claim for discrimination if that is what actually happened. If you are successful you can be entitled to some compensation for the employer’s behaviour. Before you are able to claim you are expected to involve ACAS to try and mediate between you and the employer to try and reach some sort of an agreement but if that is not possible then you can proceed with the claim.
What can i do in the case she m
Never sent me the papers
If she hasnt really dismissed me in papers if i am not going back to work for her can she say that i quit?
If she has not dismissed me then she will have to pay me for this weeks?
a dismissal does not need to be done in writing if the employer still made it clear that this isd what they were doing, for example if they had communicated with you that you were being dismissed, even if it was done verbally. But if there was no dismissal then you are entitled to be paid up until this happens, including the time up to now
Ok thank you.
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
At the moment i have no more questions but will i be able to get back to you tomorrow?
yes you can, but I would be grateful if you could please select a rating for the response above as that is an important part of our process, many thanks
Will i be entitled to pay up to now even if i am not going to work for them in future?
I mean when they open the shop again in 2 weeks
you are indeed entitled to be paid up to now, assuming there was never a dismissal. You are entitled to be paid for your time up to the date your employment terminates
you are welcome
I will rate it now
many thanks, ***** ***** button does not work, which sometimes it does not due to a bug you can just type your choice on here instead
The button doesn't work but you have my excellent service button.
many thanks, appreciated
What kind of proof i will need to proove that she dismissed me because my pregnancy?
well it has to be anything you can find really, anything that may suggest their actions were linked to that, that would obviously vary from case to case
