A few days ago I was telephoned by a prospective new client: she has been working for her employers for just over eleven months and was expecting her boss to terminate her employment at any moment. She told me she had worked well, been very flexible when required, worked unsociable hours and taken a cut in her hours when the business fell on hard times. In return her boss criticised her (unfairly I am told) for not having the right attitude and spending too much time on her social life. Leaving aside the issue of who was telling the truth, what is her legal position if her employment is terminated before she has gained 12 months continuous employment experience? What rights has she got?
