UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
11 December 2011 was my start date.
I have just learnt that they are limiting my duties, but without explanation.
No. They are asking me to perform admin tasks and limiting my ability to speak with prospects. But they have not, at any time, raised in issues about my performance or have put me under any kind of formal disciplinary or performance review.
I don't really know the position as they have not said anything to me officially. I have just been set tasks and limited in carrying out my proper role. What I want to know is, what action can I take:
a) In advance to highlight their own failure on the support they promised to provide. Could this help strengthen my position?
b) If they do fire me, without following a proper process, how strong is my position? Do I have a wrongful dismissal case?
c) do I now have a constructive dismissal case, should I now resign as a result of my change of duties?
