Thanks for your question.


No your employer cannot dismiss you if you have an application pending with the UKBA and that application was submitted before the expiration of your previous visa.


I would suggest you instruct a local solicitor to write to the UKBA on your behalf stating that your dismissal would not be in accordance with the law and further that your immigration status remains what it previously was until such time as a decision has been made.


I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.


If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
