Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What reasons have they given termination?
No real reason, just that when I wasn't in a good mood it affected those around me and that some one had complained. I have since learnt from that person that they did not actually make a complaint.
no opportunity to address any issue was given nor was nay warning written or otherwise given
Looking at the terms of the contract it appears that this is a fixed contract minimum of 1 year duration, with the only option on termination if notice is issued within 3 months of expiration. In your case, the expiration would have been in the year’s anniversary of the contract, which has not yet been reached. So you could expect compensation least the next 6 months as the contract guaranteed that you should have been working period at least. Therefore, unless there was a serious breach of contract on your part, which would have enabled the employer to terminate the contract with immediate effect, you should consider pursuing them time you should have been allowed to remain working there for.
Also consider that if they have breached the contract themselves by terminating it early without having the right to do so, any restrictions in the contract preventing you from working elsewhere after termination, are likely to be void and unenforceable.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
So can you clarify what would be considered a serious breach as I have followed the agreement to the letter. Also how best to take this forward should I just write a letter or should this be via a solicitior
There are many examples of what a serious breach would be, such as failure to follow core contractual terms, dishonesty, theft, violence, etc but in your case these do not appear to apply. At this stage there is no need solicitor and you can write to them yourself, only if there is no amicable solution and you wish to take this further should you consider a solicitor, but even then that is not a requirement, if you wanted to save on fees you can make the claim yourself
Does this answer queries?
