Hi my name is ***** ***** I am a UK employment lawyer. if your contract is governed by UK laws then you should have been given a weeks notice (or paid in lieu of notice). If you were not then you can send your employer a letter before action asking for payment of the weeks pay.
If it is not paid then you can bring a claim in the UK employment tribunals.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
If you sign a settlement agreement to accept the payment then you will be prevented from bringing a future claim under the Public Interest Disclosure Act.
You should note you only have 3 months from the dates of the detriment to bring this claim so I would suggest you commence proceedings sooner rather than later if you cannot settle for a suitable fee.
If you have any further questions please do ask. if i have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
well then you have 3 months to raise a claim. You need to start ACAS early conciliation first. Details can be found at www.acas.org.uk
Without knowing the full facts and seeing evidence I cannot give a conclusive view (it would be impossible). On the face of it there is a case to answer. Whether it is worth bringing a claim depends on the degree of economic loss you have suffered as a result of the detriment. From a practical point of view if you are not based in the UK it will not be an easy process.
If you start ACAS proceedings you will probably find the employer is more inclined to settle out of court.
hello is there anything further you would like to know as I can see you have not yet rated my answer which is an important part of the process.
As I stated above you can accept this payment and still claim. You are only prevented from bringing a future claim if you accept the money by way of a settlement agreement.
I hope this clarifies matters for you. Good luck with it.
