My employer has today told me that there are no hours for me anymore

22nd Feb 2018

After being told by my boss that there are no hours left for me I then sit in the car thinking what to do next. Within 5 mins I re-enter to ask her when I will get my final wage where I find someone else already doing my job which they had hidden in the back till I had left. Surely this can't be right?

    Sorry to hear about your situation. It obviously sounds like you have been treated unfairly. However, whether you are able to do anything about your dismissal would depend upon your length of service. Ordinarily, employees need more than 2 years' service before they can advance an unfair dismissal claim. Unfortunately, if you have less than 2 years' service, then all you would normally be entitled to is your notice pay. I hope this in some way assists.

    Kind regards, Tom Street, Employment Solicitor
