Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.Can I please ask you to give me some more detailed information regarding this matter so as to allow me to work with you and help resolve your enquiry.How may I assist
How long have you been employed by the employer?
Thank you for that additional information, that will be helpfull in allowing me to advise you today.Unfortunately, you are unable to bring a case against the employer for unfair dismissal. Ypu would need a minimum of two years service to be able to claim unfair dismissal.
You may have a claim against them for wrongful dismissal,if they have breached any contract clauses. If they have any clause in the contract on how to deal with performance or disciplinary matters and have not followed them then you could have a case for wrongful dismissal.
As for them closing your access on the computer, that is very normal when an employee is dismissed. It is unusual to be allowed to use a works computer for personal matters of messages. But the employer can freeze the computer and then delete all personal items when they receive the computer.
All very unfortunate, but with less than two years service, you have no claim for unfair dismissal, that is set in law.
The employer may allow you supervised access if it is convenient to them to do so, or they can simply wipe the laptop and reboot it, that sorry to say is their choice. The laptop is company property.
Yes you would have a right to appeal dismissal, if you wish to do so make the employer aware ASAP.
I cannot help with a su/jest access request. It yes if employer has information you should be able to request access.
I fully understand, that would normally be unfair dismissal, but the law is what it is , under two years service you cannot claim unfair dismissal.
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance. Please do not hesitate to come back to me for further advice on this or any other legal matter. It will be my pleasure to be able to assist you again.
You have no case for unfair dismissal.so nothing can be done about that.
As already explained, depending on what you contract says, you may have a case for wrongful dismissal.
As for the laptop, you have a legal obligation to return that. The employer has a discretion to allow you access to it to remove items, or they can simply reboot the item. That sorry to say is there choice.
You therefore should speak to the employer and ask again if you can retrieve the information you would like to remove.
That would be Unfair dismissal.
Wrongful dismissal is where they have broken the employment contract.
