Can her employer terminate her employment without notice

Recommended Posts

My wife has been working for 3 1/2 years in well known large retail shop doing 5am to 11:30am, she has 20 hours contract processing delivery of clothing each shift. Today the delivery staff have been informed by the store manager they are cancelling the delivery work and day staff will be doing the work, they have been told there are few jobs on the shop floor and the manager will allocate the jobs based on full availability only.

 

My questions

1, Can her employer terminate her employment without notice,

2, The employer is not giving any consultation period

3,  Can the employer offer jobs based on staff hours availability ( They have stated staff must be able to work 7am to 8pm over 7 days ) 

 

They have stated they are making the decision who has a job by the end of December. And staff who are not allocated a job with leaving.

1. no, but it doesn't sounds like that is what is happening.

2. depends how many staff are affected whether that's needed. Union?

3. it's a potentially legal criteria, yes

She went in today and told the following 

 

12 staff are moving and leaving 

 

No union 

 

No consultation as the stone manager has already confirmed who is staying. 

 

No selection process 

 

She's been told as customer support associate working in stores, they must move to sales on shop floor or leave on Christmas eve.

 

Just complete joke of company

up to 19 redundancies - no rules on how they must consult

I assume they are paying her notice in lieu of her working it? Or are they saying she is refusing suitable alternative employment (potentially true if hours/wages are similar) and has therefore effectively resigned?
