Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
So what reason did they provide for ending your contract?

There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
Many thanks for your patience. As you had less than 2 years’ service with them , you have no protection against unfair dismissal. This means that the employer could have dismissed you for more or less any reason and without following a fair procedure, as long as it was not linked to discrimination (e.g. because of your race, gender, religion, disability, etc). Assuming none of these exceptions applied, they could have easily dismissed you by simply giving you the required notice period under contract. As you were still in the probationary period (even though it was nearly the end of it), you would have still only been entitled to a week’s notice by them, which they have given you. As such they have fulfilled their contractual obligations on termination and as you do not have any further unfair dismissal protection, you won’t be able to challenge this any further.
