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.
Did you transfer under TUPE?
Thank you. Your wife has no legal right to attend the meeting with you and this will only happen if the employer allows it, which they certainly don’t. If your contract provided a specific notice for cancellation of your shift and the employer did not follow that, it would likely amount to a breach of contract but that does not make it a breach of the ERA 1996 – it is not unlawful, it is just a breach of contract.
Whilst they may have stated that the position is removed, this is not confirmed yet so it is best to wait until you know for certain whether that is the case before you consider taking things further.
Does this answer your query?
No need to mention it unless they try and implement it or use t against you somehow. You have a right to se the notes so should still pursue them for these if needed. You also have a right to relevant witnesses so whilst you may not be allowed to directly contact them, you can expect the employer to do so on your behalf to gather the required evidence or allow you to deal with them directly.
That is best dealt with by you sending them your own version with alterations
All the best
They certainly can - once the hearing has been held, then it does not matter whether you are on leave or not, they can proceed with making a decision
