Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. When exactly did you start working there as that will impact on your rights?
In April of last year.
If you have been continuously employed at your place of work for less than 2 years then your employment rights will unfortunately be somewhat limited. Most importantly, you will not be protected against unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal. This means that your employer can dismiss you or force you to resign for more or less any reason, and without following a fair procedure, as long as their decision is not based on discriminatory grounds (i.e. because of gender, race, religion, age, a disability, sexual orientation, etc.) or because you were trying to assert any of your statutory rights (e.g. requesting maternity/paternity leave, etc.).
So if you are forced to leave I am afraid you will not meet the criteria for taking the natter any further. You are nevertheless free to raise this internally through the formal grievance procedure.
Okay thank you anyway for your help
you are welcome, all the best
