Thank you very much for clarifying. So when you say it was last March do you mean 2021? Is that when your employment officially terminated? Also how long did you work there for?
Thank you very much for clarifying. So when you resigned, did you then continue working for the same trust elsewhere and if so, was there a break between the two employments, if so how long? I am just trying to work out if your continuous service was broken?
Hello, I was wondering if you have had a chance to consider my query above please? I will need your response before I provide an accurate answer to your situation. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
Hello, I trust that everything has now been resolved to your satisfaction and your original question has been dealt with. If you have any further queries about it, please do not hesitate to get back to me on here. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.
Thank you very much for clarifying. The problem with all of this is that the only way to challenge it would have been through an unfair dismissal claim. However, there is a 3-month time limit to make such a claim and as your employment officially terminated in March 2020, you are clearly out of time to be pursuing that now. I appreciate you may not have felt the after-effects until now, but that does not change the legal time limits within which a claim must have been made. So as unfortunate as it is, you are legally out of time to be making a legal challenge for what happened and the alleged unfair dismissal.
I appreciate that but realising too late that you could have potentially claimed or what type of claim it is would not give you rights to claim out of time.
If you had claimed for unfair dismissal then you would have been compensated for loss of earnings, resulting from such a dismissal. You could have also asked for a reinstatement order, asking your employer to re-engage you
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this, please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be happy to help. All the best
