dh has been dismissed by letter today due to absenteeism (hes on the sickhmm) we dont have a case against them fo booting him whilst hes on the sick becuase he had only been with the company several weeks prior, how ever when we got the letter for a disciplinary meeting we did consult a solicitor who told us there are 3 steps, 1 being writing inviting him to the meeting, 2 being writing to him with a decision and 3 they must ofer him the right to appeal, she said she cant see them being stupid enough not to proceed properly, but if they did not offer the appeal to go straight back to her as we will have a case, is this true? its just she was a trainee and im a bit unsure

They should normally offer him a right to appeal however, if he was still in his probation period i am not sure that this applies.
