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 is your continuous service? Please note I am mobile today so may not be able to reply until later today thanks
Many thanks for your patience. The main issue for you is that you have been there continuously for less than 2 years, which means you have no protection against constructive dismissal. This would have been your only real claim in the circumstances, which is where you are forced to resign as a result of the employer’s unreasonable behaviour and you then pursue them for compensation for loss of earnings. However, you do need to have that 2 year’s of service, which sadly you don’t and it means you can potentially be forced to leave your job without any comeback.
You can still make a claim for any money they had unfairly deducted but that would be as far as your claims go.
I appreciate this may not be the answer you were hoping for but it is the legal position and I hope that it at least clarifies where you stand?
