Apprenterships legal rights

Apprenterships legal rights

My son worked as an apprentice in the car industry. On Friday 23rd June he was told they did not require his services any more and not to bother coming back to work on Monday. He only has 1 year left of his apprentership and now has nowhere to complete it. Can they legally do this. No notice period was given, no warnings verbal or by letter.

I had a similar case in my previous employment, the 'case' was won and lost on the terms of the apprenticeship, i.e. 'guarantee' to complete to NVQ Level 3. If you require any more detail please reply to my email address.

A lot will depend on his terms of apprenticeship but I am sure that he is protected by the same rights as everyone else. I checked when the grievance procedure legislation came in to force and the view of the solicitors I used at that time was that it did cover apprentices.

May advice is to speak view quickly to ACAS and your local citizen’s advice bureau. My view is that there will advise him to submit a grievance in relation to his termination. Any claim to an Employment Tribunal will not succeed unless the Grievance Procedure has been used first.

Vicky
using the grievance procedure should be aimed at getting him nack into work where he is/was or their help in finding him somewhere else.
ET claims are all very well but he needs to complete his training.
