Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. What is the exact breach you are trying to rely on please?
Hi there, I am afraid that this is not a breach of contract. This is an unfair dismissal matter, against which you simply have no protection at this stage. Employing you and saying that your employment is subject to a satisfactory DBS does not mean that they have to keep you on and not be able to dismiss you at all. They still can as long as they follow the termination clauses in your contract. A breach of contract would have been if they dismissed you by not following the termination clauses, such as by not giving you the notice they are required to give you. However, a contract does allow an employer to terminate someone if they provide the required notice so regardless of what the reasons for that are, it is still allowed under contract to terminate someone. So unless you can show that they had not paid you the required notice for termination, you cannot challenge this as a breach of contract I’m afraid.
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed. If you are still satisfied with the level of service you have received I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 starts at the top of the page.
