Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What do you specifically want to know about this please?
How long have you worked there for?
Thanks. The law does not actually provide a specific period of time within which the employer must deal with your appeal. They should do it within a reasonable time but if there is a specific policy in place then they should follow that. The problem is your length of service, which is less than 2 years. This means you have no unfair dismissal protection and cannot challenge an unfair procedure. So even if the employer completely fails to deal with your appeal, you cannot realistically (and legally) challenge that. So whilst it is only 3 days late, do give it a bit more time, for example until next week. However, keep in mind that even if they never actually deal with it, you cannot legally challenge them over that.
Does this answer your query?
It is generally accepted that the notice of termination becomes legally valid once you have received it, so in your case it would be 23rd. There is some case law to back that up:
you are welcome and all the best
