Hi there, you have the right to receive a written statement of employment particulars within 2 months of starting employment so even though that only counts from the time you actually started working for them, it should be updated if the job changes significantly. Hoev, if they refuse to do this or eventually your job is affected in some ay, your rights will be rather limited in the next 4-5 months.
That is because if you have been continuously employed at your place of work for less than 2 years you will not be protected against unfair dismissal. This means that your employer can dismiss you for more or less any reason, and without following a fair procedure, as long as their decision is not based on a reason which makes a dismissal automatically unfair. These include:
• Discrimination due to a protected characteristic (i.e. because of gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, etc.)
• Taking, or trying to take, leave for family reasons including pregnancy, maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, childbirth and parental leave
• Making a protected disclosure (i.e. whistleblowing)
• Being a part-time worker
However, if the dismissal had nothing to do with any of the above exceptions then you would not be able to challenge it. In that case your only protection would be if you were dismissed in breach of contract. That could happen if you were not paid your contractual notice period (unless you were dismissed for gross misconduct) or the employer had not followed a contractually binding dismissal procedure. If you did not have a written contract in place you would be entitled to the minimum statutory notice period of 1 week. Your employer would either have to allow you to work that notice period and pay you as normal, or they will have to pay you in lieu of notice.
So in effect they could refuse to define your current job, issue a contract and before you reach 2 years employment terminate you for more or less any reason, bar any of the limited exceptions mentioned above.
