'Jane's' story

Jane contacted us when her contract with a cleaning company was terminated after 22 months’ service.

Jane had been offered a new contract with the same company, however this meant going back on probation.

During the pandemic, Jane was put on Statutory Sick Pay – rather than furlough – despite the fact that she was not ill.  Jane had never taken a sick day and had a clean disciplinary record.

Jane decided that she was not going to sign a new contract with the cleaning company and, with our assistance, she received £2,500 for unfair dismissal.
