Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
I am a solicitor.
Yes, you are protected by S. 3C of the Immigration Act 1971 and your leave to remain continues until your ILR application is decided.
You should ask your employer to look at this Home Office guidance: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/953205/3C-3D-leave-v10.0ext.pdf
And your employer may also call the Home Office to verify the above.
May I help further?
Sorry, I am unable to call.
In that case, you may take legal proceedings against them for wrongfully denying you to work. For that, you may need an employment law specialist to make your claim.
They should pay you for the 5 days you were not permitted to work in that case.
You may cancel the call request by contacting customer support.
The law would protect you if they dismiss you.
All the best
Yes, the law protects you.
I am about to go offline shortly.
Please start a new question. Another colleague will help you with your additional questions.
