Breach of Contract
Where the employer is found to be in breach of employment law regarding contracts BASIC will enforce the rights of their members.
A dismissal is where your employer no longer requires you to work for them and seeks to replace you with someone else. A dismissal can be considered fair or unfair. Employers bear the onus of the Acts regulatory force as the burden is on them to prove a dismissal is not unfair by establishing substantial grounds justifying the dismissal and they followed fair procedures. You must be one year in continuous employment for unfair dismissal. At disciplinary hearings you are entitled to a representative. BASIC will provide a security consultant to represent their members at any disciplinary hearings.
You are protected by the Payment of wages Act 1991. By law you must get a payslip or a statement of wages before wage payments are made. All deductions being made (and authorised by you) must be clearly marked on your payslip. No deductions can be made for personal protective equipment such as ear pieces.
