At at BBQ at the weekend, got gassing to one of the âin-lawsâ (partner's sister's boyfriend) who's looking at having a bun fight with a company he was contacting for. He's self employed and has been subcontracting for a building company for a few years. At the start of the year he was dropped with no explanation. The reason they gave was lack of work, but a couple of friends within the company informed him that it was because he had an argument with the one of the minor bosses. He says looking into legal action Reason I'm asking is I had a sort of similar situation a while back, and my understanding was that if you're self employed you have no recourse on this sort of a thing. Can anyone enlighten me on this please?
