Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long have you worked there for?
Whilst you can argue that there was a binding contract, simply because there was an offer and an acceptance. However, due to only being there for a year you have limited rights to challenge them. They can dismiss you for more or less any reason, which means they can terminate this offer by giving you proper notice (generally 1 week in the first 2 years). So whilst they did offer you this role, as you have no unfair dismissal protection yet. It is unethical but not unlawful.
