Can my Employer dismiss me after 7 months stating simply its not working out??

14th Jun 2019

Started working for a packaging company in August 2018

Production Supervisor. Money was just £24000 per year.

No overtime or Bonus and No payment for extra hours worked.

Told that i was salaried and no money would be paid to me for any extra hours worked.

So found myself covering other Supervisor for Holidays and sickness with no extra pay.

Travelling to the site and unlocking at least half an hour early each day to open factory and turn off alarms etc

No warnings or letters issued to me during my time there.

Was told on 03.03.19 that job was not working out and was more or less asked to leave that day.

Paid a paltry sum at the end of the month and am now still jobless.

Do i have a claim...???

Whilst I understand the need to furlough temporarily,...

  • Can a freelance employer cut wages 50% whilst maintaining full-time hours?

    The company I have a rolling freelance contract with has instituted a 50% pay cut for all staff across the board. Wanting to cut the company some slack (it being a start-up) and assuming this translated to a 50% decrease in hours as well, I accepted. The idea of a 50% cut in wages for full-time work seemed so irrational I never considered it an option....
