No, its been permanent employment since 6th June 2006.
Mr A, is told the only reason Mr A is being required to sign a new contract is because of this new grading system and to update the old contracts with new legal requirements.
I'll be checking my answers around 4/5pm today.
No problem if you need more time, just let me know.
It appears that the employer is getting Mr A to sign a new contract starting on 2nd April 2016 with continuous employment which commenced on 6th June 2006. But key point is that the new contract will terminate on 3rd November 2016 without the need for further notice. Effectively making the contract a fixed term contract.
This has not been explained to Mr A. is it legal to do this without explaining this?
Can that in itself be considered constructive dismissal?
OK thank you, understood.
Shall Mr A ask his employer to explain what their intention is by adding that clause in?
ok, thank very much for clarifying all my queries so far.
