Maisy is my granddaughter and as she is 17 I am requesting information on her behalf. Maisy started an Animal Care course at college last October. This involved an apprenticeship at a local kennels 4 days per week plus overtime.and was paid £2.65 p.h. She was seriously ill for 2 weeks over Xmas and her employer dismissed her with no formal warning, merely saying she needed "someone reliable". This has prevented Maisy from continuing with her college course. Does Maisy have any rights?
