UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Did you give notice or did you just give her money equal to a weeks wages and she accepted?
...and what does contract say about notice periods and payment in lieu of notice?
Okay, she's talking nonsense. An employee only generally accrues the right not to be unfairly dismissed after one year. Provided you have given her the correct notice period and not breached any other terms of her contract she will have no claim.
If you offered her payment in lieu noticed (ie.you explained that to her) and she accepted
then this is not a breach of contract.
I would be astonished if anything else happened over this.
