Yes but the agency has said (verbally) that they are keeping me on their books and want to offer me more work. I have yet to meet with them face to face to clariy this but have a meeting set up for this afternoon.
I have a grievenace with them over how they handled supporting/not supporting me through my "early termination of assignment" with the company.
I was in a temporary role (via agency) with the company with a view to getting a permant role with the company.
Legally, I believe, the company and the agency are at liberty to end an assignment at any point with no reason given and no notice. but
1) I would like to clarify this (given that I had been at the company for over 2 weeks)
2) I have a grievance over the fact that my contract was terminated early
a) with the agency
b) with the company
The reason being given is "unacceptable behaviour" but I strongly dispute this and think this is linked to discrimiation under the Equality Act (I have a disability) and also internal whistleblowing (within the company) leading to the department I was working within terminating my contract
Agency stages of disciplinary: verbal warning, 1st written warning, final written warning
Company stages are similar
I had no warning, was invited to a meeting with no agenda the day after the "whistleblowing" event, was not given the agenda when I asked for it, contacted the agency who came across to the company to meet with me but, in fact, met with the company and then when I came back from my break for the meeting my pass had already been blocked and my PC user profile deleted
