A friend has just been dismissed from her job for "not being good enough."
This fell on her out of the blue, with no prior warning, no development or action plan, and no notice period. Apparently the CEO fired her directly, without going through her manager.
She has worked with them since May of last year so she is not eligible to claim unfair dismissal, and she is not unionised, but she was outside of her probation period and was a full time worker on a permanent contract. She was employed in the UK and is a British citizen.
Are there any other avenues to pursue if she has been dismissed in violation of her employer’s internal disciplinary processes?
