Hello I started working for a new employer on the 1st of July this year and I went on holiday on the 3rd of August and came back on the 13th it had all been prearranged so no problems there, on my arrival back at work at 8 am I was met by the boss who had a whole list of stupid minor complaints that she concocted whilst I was away, I had already written my month's notice out and so Ipresented it to her, she never opened the envelope she turned her back on me and as she was walking away said I [email protected] need a notice just go and so I left. My question is does she have to pay me my notice period, I never received a contract
JA: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?
Customer: there is no HR and no I [email protected] discussed it with a lawyer
JA: What is your employment status? Are you an employee, freelancer, consultant or contractor? Do you belong to a union?
Customer: I belong to USDAW and I was an on the books full time employee
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that is all thank you

Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today.

You are entitled to a weeks notice.

You should write to ask for the notice.

If it is not paid you can contact ACAS to start early conciliation and if it is still not paid you can claim in the Employment Tribunal.

Is there anything further you would like to know about this?
