Jesus m8, sorry to hear that :(

TBH it sounds rather hypocritical that they've sacked you primarily for not following procedures when it sounds like they've not followed them themselves,

Reckon any decent lawyer would have them over a barrel at an industrial tribunal.

sorry to hear this daft, but by the sounds of it, you can hopefully do something about it as an unfair dismissal

I feel so lucky I have such a trust with my bosses that they wouldnt even question something like this

Sorry to hear about you losing you job Daft! However whatever you do don't go to the solicitors and tell them you lost your job because your employers are "fooking ghey!" no matter how true it may be!

Feel for you mate but not entirely surprising. As the law stands, I believe employees have basically no rights at all until they've been employed for two years. Before that point, you can be fired pretty much on a whim with no reason whatsoever.

lolwhat thats rediculous. As you followed all procedures they can't just let you go like that no matter how long you've been working there for? Surely you still have a minimum notice period they can do it under as well.

Total rubbish if you ask me. Phoned CAB? (Citizen's Advice Bureau) ?

You essentially have no rights until you have been employed for 2 years (that is with regard to unfair dismissal)

Did they find you guilty of Gross Misconduct?

"You lose your right to notice if you are dismissed for gross misconduct. This term has not been defined by statute, however employers often give examples of gross misconduct either in the contract itself or in the staff handbook."

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
