My guess Iain , is they realised they couldn't do it legally  , it would have been constructive dismissal  - My advice now is get her to document everything that happened and in the future and take them to a tribunal if in the next few weeks they look to "manage" her out - which from knowing how it works I  think they will try to do . if you need any advice on this mate just PM me.      smile

 I see this kind of thing a lot. Makes me wonder how some companies stay in business 
   

... My advice now is get her to document everything that happened ..

Yes, do exactly that (need a head-nodding vamecon). Keep copies of emails, any letters, make notes about conversations & phone calls, dates, times, the lot.

 I read in the Daily Mail quite a while ago that a lot of bosses have psychopathy.   The layman's idea of a psychopath is like the villain in that Dirty Harry movie where the bad guy hijacks a busful of school kids.   Not actually true, that's the extreme end of the wedge and not at all typical of most psychopaths.   
      Psychopathy is basically a lack of the ability to empathise and feel pity or be compassionate and caring.    It can help contribute to a successful business mind because these bosses are ruthless people.   That may or may not be the case here,  it sure does sound like it, though.    You do get some right hard-bitten, horrible people in management or amongest ambitious people trying to get up there.    
      I had a boss about 20 years ago who sacked a girl who was pregnant.   She went home in the lunch-hour,  started bleeding and fainted,  she didn't return that afternoon so he sacked her.    I'm sure he was a psychopath.   He was also a successful, self-made businessman, he had built the business up from nothing.   He was also an ex-Royal Marine Commando and had a black belt in full-contact karate.   He was the sort of guy who didn't take excuses and he wasn't the nicest person you could meet, but everyone had deep respect for him for his achievements.

This is so way

However I am all for equal rights blah blah blah but I also run a successful business where I employ staff. I lost 2 big contracts this year because the business' went under which left me over staffed and I had to let someone go as simply as that, I did not get where I am giving away free meal tickets, there was not enough work and I know Christmas is around the corner but "Goodbye" sorry guys but feeding my family comes first always 2 sides of the coin. and I'm an ex Royal Marine not that that has any bearing on it

Up to 11, way to go guys!  Come on the rest, this is a one-off opportunity to have a stunning VAME 2010 calendar on the wall.  Unlike the other items which we are seeking to hold a small stock, I believe we are only having enough calendars made for those who order them

The calendar is now at the printer's for them to check. Hopefully I will be getting a proof back soon to give it a final check. I don't know if I can add any more birthdays at this point but if I can, I will.
