Employee rights

Comment 26th July 2010

The current law states that an employee must have 1 year's continuous employment with the same employer to qualify for unfair dismissal protection.

This is direct violation of Article 23 para. 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states: "Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work…"

Dismissal at the whim of an employer without any form of recourse is not only unjust it is criminal and should be outlawed, not covered by legislation.

Why does this matter?

Under this law an employer can literally dismiss a person without even giving them a reason! It happened to me and  I had no right to appeal to an employment tribunal because of this law.

This is inhuman!

The Unions are useless in contesting the law as my own union stated "It was introduced by Thatcher so we can't do anything about it". So tthey didn't! What a load of bo*****s.

ACAS said they were powerless to do anything about it beause it was law. It's archaic!
