taratill :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Does he believe that he is being discriminated against in this decision?

taratill :

Hi even if he does not believe he has been discriminated against he is entitled to notice pay of a weeks pay plus a payment in lieu of untaken annual leave. This is the case even without a contract.

taratill :

He should ask his employer to pay him this money. If they do not then he can bring a claim in the employment tribunal using the form he will find at

taratill :

If he believes the decision amounts to discrimination on the basis of sex, race, age religion, disability or for raising a health and safety complaint then he may be able to claim for compensation for the manner of his dismissal. Please let me know if this is the case and I can advise you further.
