can you explain why you have complained about them and also tell me what notice period your contract contains?
ok but what issue were you whistleblowing about?
Ok well the basic position is that an employee with under a year's service does not have the right to claim unfair dismissal if they are dismissed.
The employer could therefore dismiss you. The employer would have to pay you statutory notice of one week's pay plus any outstanding accrued holiday pay.
There is an exception to the basic position where an employee is dismissed for making a protected disclosure (whistleblowing). If you are dismissed you should appeal on this basis. You can also claim unfair dismissal under this exception.
In order to win you will have to show that it was reasonable for you to make this disclosure without first discussing your concerns with the employer and asking them to put matters right.
Please remember to press ACCEPT I will then leave the question open to answer your follow on questions.
