Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long have you worked there for?
Please note I may not be able to reply until the morning, thanks
Many thanks for your patience. Whilst you may have initially resigned, if you retracted that and then the employer accepted that retraction, the resignation would have been cancelled and no longer applicable. So if suddenly the employer has changed its mind and still wants you to leave, they can no longer rely on your resignation as it has officially been rescinded. Therefore, if they are looking at terminating you, it must either come through a renewed resignation by you, or they would have to find a new reason for termination, which can only be misconduct capability, redundancy or some other substantial reason. If they chose a reason that is not really applicable just to try and avoid redundancy, then you can consider an unfair dismissal claim against them in the Employment Tribunal.
Does this answer your query?
Well…it does depend on whether the person who did this had the authority to make such a decision. For example, were they just trying to acknowledge your request or did the have the authority to approve it? If you cannot go to your manager then you need to go one step above that or HR
All the best
