Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Was your service unbroken?
No it was worked out that I had 24yrs unbroken service
Are you still there?
Yes I am still here, just need to get my response ready
Now that you have been dismissed from your employment, the only option you have of taking this matter further is to claim unfair dismissal in the employment tribunal. There are no other steps available to you where you can still challenge this directly with the employer. There is a strict time limit of 3 months to submit a claim so you must do so no later than 3 October, which is quite soon. Before you are able to make a claim you must go through ACAS and use their early conciliation service where they will act as a mediator between you and the employer to try and come to some sort of agreement over a financial settlement in order to avoid you having to go to tribunal. However, if that cannot be agreed you will be allowed to submit your claim. Once you contact ACAS this will put a stop to the time limit for claiming so you will not miss out on the deadline, but once that process has finished the time will start running again and you will have a short space of time to submit your claim and take this further if you wanted to.
Ok, thanks for your help.
you are welcome
Thanks, ***** ***** best
