inadmissible reason

Quick Reference

(in employment law) Dismissal for an inadmissible reason is always treated as unfair dismissal, and the employee may apply to an employment tribunal regardless of his length of continuous employment. Inadmissible reasons include dismissal based on membership or participation in the activities of an independent trade union or a refusal to become or remain a member of a union. Inadmissible reasons also cover situations in which the employee has made a protected disclosure (see whistle-blowing) or has been dismissed for asserting certain statutory rights, including the right to the national minimum wage. See also compensation.
