Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Does he believe that he is being discriminated against in this decision?
Hi even if he does not believe he has been discriminated against he is entitled to notice pay of a weeks pay plus a payment in lieu of untaken annual leave. This is the case even without a contract.
He should ask his employer to pay him this money. If they do not then he can bring a claim in the employment tribunal using the form he will find at www.employmenttribunals.gov.uk.
If he believes the decision amounts to discrimination on the basis of sex, race, age religion, disability or for raising a health and safety complaint then he may be able to claim for compensation for the manner of his dismissal. Please let me know if this is the case and I can advise you further.
I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
