    I'm not sure but think he is within his rights to let you go once you told him you were going. The weeks notice is to suit him to give him a chance to get replacement. It would be different if he was letting you go he would have to give you notice or pay

    Not if they are following current UK employment law. You'll win a tribunal eventually, but it will be a pain. Good luck.

    blokes a cnut mate after 4 weeks you and employer must give a weeks notice of leave you have done that and hes chucked his dummy treat it as a learning curve.If you are in a union give a bell and let them sort it i would not bother with a tribunal though you would win your case because of the expense for one weeks money,hope this helps

    Citizens advice will talk you through it. There is no cost to you.

    As I wrote the first comment, I kind of thought in the back of my mind that they did in fact, change things fairly recently to include a charge as you say. That charge was designed to reduce the number of ridiculous claims being brought against an employer, not for genuine cases such as the one that you describe.
    I would at least speak to citizens advice to hear their take on it.
