I have worked there since Christmas, as a Christmas temp 02/12/12 my contract expires on Saturday but the company police states that there has to be would be one first absence review (which I had) and a second one, she said that she chose not to have the second absence review and dismiss me instead, I also did not have enough notice, in Fact I had no idea that the meeting was to dismiss me, she said that it would be an informal meeting and did not specify the subject.
My contract ends on 06/07/2013 but I have been unable to go to work due to this episode and I feel hurt.
Thank you for your patience, just to clarify - is the policy you refer to contractual or just a non-contractual policy available at work?
