Have My Employee Rights Been Breached?There are many issues which can arise in working life which may be a breach of your employee rights and of employment laws. These issues may include:
If you feel that you have been unfairly dismissed, you have a right to complain to an employment tribunal. There are a great many cases in which unfair dismissals take place. A few of the most common examples include:
- An employer has no fair reason for your dismissal (i.e. your job performance is flawless)
- An employer fails to follow the correct dismissal process
- An employer dismisses you for an illegal reason (i.e. request for maternity leave)
