Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What reason did your employer provide for terminating your employment?
and if possible, please upload a copy of the contract you signed on here
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. First of all, I am sorry to hear about the issues you have experienced in your situation.
As you have worked there for less than 2 years you have no unfair dismissal protection which means they could have terminated your employment without any fair reason or fair procedure, simply because they changed their mind for example. You are still due any rights under contract, such as the notice period, which means you are due to receive a week’s notice and equivalent pay. This is even if they do not want you to work during that week.
It is highly unlikely that you can do anything about you thinking that they misrepresented the job by not giving you a managerial position – you worked there for a very sort time and it would not be enough to be able to give a detailed example of what your duties and responsibilities were. Also, your duties were not specifically outlined so who is to say that as a manager you had to manage people – they can still call it a manager’s job without you managing people, it could be managing other things in the workplace. I really do not see this allowing you to claim anything further from them and you can only expect the week’s notice a most.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be glad to help. All the best
