Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Please explain the situation and circumstances in some detail. What reason did the employer provide for doing this and how long have you they worked there for?
Many thanks for your patience. Whilst he has no unfair dismissal protection because he has not been there for 2 year, he can challenge the retrospective dismissal.
The dismissal would inly be effective once notice of termination has been effectively communicated to him. If no notice has been submitted on the date they try and claim his dismissal occurred, they cannot backdate it in that way. He would therefore expect them to pay him for the time between the alleged dismissal date and the date his employment actually terminated, when notice was properly communicated to him.
