Written reasons for dismissal
You have the right to ask for a written statement from your employer giving the reasons why you are dismissed provided that you are an employee and have completed one year’s service. Upon request for this written statement your employer must provide one within 14 days of this date.
If you are dismissed while you are on a statutory maternity leave, your employer must give you a written statement. You get this despite not having asked for one and regardless of the length of service.
‘Fair’ dismissal occurred because of rejecting changes of employment terms
