I wonder if any of you could advise on the following.


My Neighbour started a new job 6 months ago, on December 1, 2013 the company split it self in 2 & formed a new company . She was Tuped over , with out consultation, no meeting or given any new contract. After a lot of thought she decided too hand in her resignation [ one weeks notice] effective from 6/1/2014. Today she was given a letter stating that as from 24/12/2013 her contract was being terminated. Is she being sacked?, having already given notice can the company then terminate her employment ?. She has never seen her new terms & conditions, been consulted on the hand over or been kept informed . As she had already decided to go , she feels it is a point of princeable to honour the notice period she gave & technically if a new employer makes checks , then she was sacked. Is there any action she can take to enforce the notice period she gave them. She is also being asked to train the new person who turned up today to replace her.

Given her length of service, it does appear that the company have acted within the law, yes. It sounds as though the new company simply don't want her, so dismissal is the best option.


Unfair, yes - but not unlawful, and I can't see any way to tie them into the longer notice your friend gave.

Funny you should say that Conniff, the person she is training can`t cope with the amount of work she gets through,the speed & how well she deals with customers. The trainee is going home tonight & it might be bad news for the company tomorrow. She is only leaving because she wants more training & more responsibilities & to expand her skill base. You would think a company would value that kind of enthusiasm from an employee. Watch this space .
