Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Very sorry to hear of the way that you have been treated.
Unfortunately an employer does not have to supply either a written contract or job description to an employee. They MUST however supply a Written statement of particulars to the employee that sets out the main areas of employment , this must by law be given within the first 8n weeks. So if they have just terminated you employment, there would be no need for them to give you a copy of this.
As you have less that two years service, then is no way to complain of unfair dismissal. Sorry.
It would still not count as unfair dismissal. You could complain to an employment tribunal but normally that would be for them to make the employer serve the document.
Did they give you any notice?
Then in that case you should have a case against them for wrongful dismissal.
You would take two matters to the employment tribunal. The wrongful dismissal case and the failure to serve you with the statement of particulars.
You need to contact acas first thong on Monday to start the case against the former employer.
You must go via acas. www.acas.org.uk. There is no cost to use there acas service, they will start the ball rolling.
Good luck and take care.

They failed to supply documents, and give you a notice period. Due to covid19, it may be more difficult to find other work at the moment. That is something a tribunal would consider. So yes, two months could be reasonable.
I am sorry but I would not be able to comment on the contents of personal documents.
If I were, I would advice that there is no ground to challenge for unfair dismissal, only wrongful dismissal. Also when you confirmed to Julia the "only thinking you could think of" perhaps that could be "only thing I could think of."
