Were you given notice period
She said that usually they would give me a weeks notice but there was not point in me staying she asked me to leave there and then but she would pay me till the end of the month
end of Feb?
Its a bit of a wierd circumstance but i think she just wanted me gone
ok let me get my response ready please
If you have been continuously employed at your place of work for less than 2 years then your employment rights will unfortunately be somewhat limited. Most importantly, you will not be protected against unfair dismissal. This means that your employer can dismiss you for more or less any reason, and without following a fair procedure, as long as their decision is not based on discriminatory grounds (i.e. because of gender, race, religion, age, a disability, sexual orientation, etc.) or because you were trying to assert any of your statutory rights (e.g. requesting maternity/paternity leave, etc.).
If the dismissal had nothing to do with any of the above exceptions then you would not be able to challenge it and your only protection would be if you were not paid your contractual notice period, because unless you were dismissed for gross misconduct, you would be entitled to receive your contractual notice period. However, this is not an issue here as you said you are entitled to a week’s notice but are getting paid until the end of the month so they have already paid you what you are contractually due.
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this?
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you wanted to hear but I hope you understand I have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands and sometimes this does unfortunately mean delivering bad news. Please let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
