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.
If an employer is making unlawful deductions for wages, not giving correct holiday entitlement and breaching notice time, then yes these could certainly be classed as fundamental breaches of an employee contract.
Very sorry to hear what has happened.
Yes you are correct.
With less than two years service, you cannot use unfair dismissal , but certainly can claim wrongful dismissal against the former employer.
when you ask your question, you can then ask for me.
I cannot comment on case specific matters because I have nor seen case papers and it would be wrong to comment on detailed legal issues without having access to all case papers.
However, from what you have said, it does appear that the onus is on the employee to sign in and out correctly, which you say did not happen. If you cannot remember dates you worked or times that you worked, then you will struggle with a case. I cannot speak for the employer and what records they keep or require. That would be up to them what they accept.
I would suggest if it is becoming difficult, that you actually instruct a solicitor to represent you against the company.
It may be helpful to instruct a local solicitor who specialises in this area of law. You can find a local firm using the Law Society website. www.lawsociety.org.uk
Once on that website, you can click on the find a solicitor option located just above the Law Society logo. Select quick search, then select the area of law required and enter your post code. A list of local firms will then be displayed.
If you are unable to pay yourself, then you may be able to fine a probono or no win no fee firm.
The following two links will take you to where you may find solicitors who can assist, on either a free probono basis or on a no win no fee basis. Very often they deal with clients who cannot afford to pay for legal assistance and for whom legal aid is not available. www.nationalprobonocentre.org.uk/finding-legal-help. The second is www.lawworks.org.uk
