Challenging the employer’s decision
If you already work for the employer who rejected your application, you should raise the issue with your employer.
Otherwise you can:
- call the Acas helpline to discuss your options
- get legal advice – some local Citizens Advice offer this for free
If you’ve tried all options without success and believe the employer broke the law, you can make a claim to an employment tribunal.
In very rare circumstances you might be able to claim ‘constructive dismissal’, if you believe your employer’s decision was so unreasonable that you had to leave your job.
