Can I Sack an Apprentice?

Apprentice Sacking Dismissal Dismiss

Apprentices can be a hugely valuable addition to your workforce. Many businesses rely on apprentices to provide them with the skills they need, and many apprentices go on to climb within the business in which they train.

Sometimes, though, things don’t work out. It is sometimes necessary to dismiss apprentices. While this is not a pleasant task, there is often no alternative. It is legally possible to sack apprentices. But you need to make sure that you act within the boundaries of the law in order to avoid a potentially expensive employment tribunal.

Can I Sack Apprentices?

Yes. Apprentices are employees just like any other. This means various things. To begin with, it means that they are entitled to the same rights and protections that all other employees enjoy. For example, they are entitled to be paid a certain amount. But it also means that they can be treated like employees in other ways too – so they are not immune from sacking.

It is important to remember, however, that dismissals must be carried out in a manner that is legally valid. If you fail to adhere to the rules when sacking an apprentice (or, indeed, any other employee) you could end up with an expensive tribunal to face.

On What Grounds Can I Sack an Apprentice?

In order to sack someone legally, you have to establish fair grounds for their dismissal. There is a range of factors that might be considered fair grounds. These include, for example, poor conduct, or an inability to perform the job properly. Fair grounds might also include a legal reason that the apprentice can no longer work – for example if they are a driver and they lose their licence.

In addition, you must be able to show that you have acted reasonably during the course of the dismissal. There is, as yet, no firm legal definition of ‘reasonableness’. But in order for your conduct to be deemed reasonable, you will probably have to fulfil certain criteria. You must, for example, be able to show that you had a genuine and reasonable belief that the grounds for dismissal were fair. You may also have to show that you told the apprentice that you were considering sacking them, and that you gave them adequate opportunity to appeal. You will also be required to show, where applicable, that you conducted a proper and thorough investigation before dismissing them.

What Procedures Must I Follow?

Employers are required to have a written set of disciplinary and dismissal procedures. These must be drawn up in accordance with the Acas codes of practice, and they must be provided to all employees. You must follow these procedures at all times.

If you fail to abide by your own procedures, or if you do not have any procedures, you will have a much harder time showing that you have dismissed your apprentice fairly and reasonably. You can get the relevant codes of practice from the Acas website.

What About Fixed Term Contracts?

An apprentice’s contract with their employer normally has a specified length – but it is not legally considered to be a fixed term contract. Indeed, the Fixed Term Employees Regulations exclude apprentices altogether.

In practice, apprentices enjoy many more rights than those offered to a worker on a fixed term contract. If you want to dismiss an apprentice, the onus is on you to show that you are not breaking the terms of your agreement with the apprentice.

This has significant implications for dismissal. If you break the terms of the agreement, the apprentice stands a good chance of being awarded at tribunal all the wages they would otherwise have been paid for the length of the contract. You therefore need to be very careful when it comes to dismissing apprentices.

You should consider making sure that your disciplinary procedures, and what you consider to be fair and reasonable grounds for dismissal, are included in the apprentice agreement. This way you stand less chance of being accused of breaking the contract in the event that you have to dismiss an apprentice for one of these reasons. More information about fixed term contracts and apprentices is available elsewhere on this site.

Dismissal is a difficult process, and one that is fraught with potential legal problems. If you are in any doubt you should seek independent advice before taking action.

Issy - Your Question:
My friends son has been sacked from his apprenticeship as a mechanic. 3 working days before had conversation with his service manager and received letter which put in his personel records, regarding his mistakes and they wanted too see improvement. As said 3 days later he was verbally sacked by after sales director, no HR was present and no minutes of meeting were recorded. In May he had surgery on both big toes for ingrowing toenails he took 3 days off, he couldnt afford to take anymore time off asked his manager to put him on light duties, manager refused. Then told him he picked and chose when his toes hurt and if he carried on he would sack him. I know one of receptionists there and the company are hoping they have done enough to justify sacking him, even managing director questioned manager who sacked him if he had done right thing. What can I do to help him, can I complain to anybody?

Our Response:
You would firstly have to check whether your friend's dismissal was deemed unfair, please see link here.

I took on an apprentice and signed a 12 months agreement, as the 12 months approached I was informed she had passed pending a couple of loose ends, each month following the training provider kept saying she’s nearly done and we are now 19months into the apprenticeship. I only signed for 12 months and have been told if my apprentice doesn’t make the 62mile round trip at her own expense to their training school she will loose her qual and I (the employer) will have to pay back the £1200 grant to them, I have done extensive research and know that this is wrong, I have put in a formal complaint via phone and email and have heard nothing back even after chasing up daily.What I’d like to know now is am I able to terminate the apprenticeship?

Marie - Your Question:
My son's 8 months into an engineering apprenticeship, on low apprenticeship money. He's just been told he has to work for another company that supplies the company he's employed by, for a week or two, as the supplying company are short on staff, and struggling to recruit. Is this legal? Can he be made to work for another company (that has no connection with the company he's employed by?) This other company is 30 miles away, so my son will have to work there. He knows nothing about the job, or health and safety there.just that they're desperate for staff. Is it legal for a company to offer their apprentices to another company? He was told he'll have to do it, or he's out. There's no union in the place. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Our Response:
Your son would have to read the terms and conditions of his employment contract to find this out. If there is detail in there saying he may be sent to other sites or be asked to undertake other duties off-site as part of his training, then his employer can do this. However, if there is nothing in the contract that states this, then he would have to take this up with his employer directly, especially if it is going to incur extra costs.

Jt- Your Question:
I started with a leak detection company 8 weeks ago and now my trainer is saying that I'm not willing. I normally get picked up about 5am and he doesn't always pick me up to travel to our jobs. Am I expected to travel to his house to then travel to our jobs as we don't have a base in our area? Can I get any help with travelling costs as my wage doesn't cover public transport costs?

Our Response:
Your employer is not expected to pay for your travel too and from work, neither is your training provider. You can speak directly to your employer to say you are having difficulties to see if you can both figure a way around this, but it is not your employer's responsibility. I assume you knew that you would have to travel too and from work when you accepted the position? Plus, researched how this would be possible and/or fit in with your income and expenditure?

My son has been on a new apprenticeship since October 2017. His boss has now decided that she wants to change her company from property maintenance to doing new builds and says now she doesn't need an apprentice. Can she just get rid of him?

Aw2001 - Your Question:
I got sacked today,I was 6months into my apprenticeship age 16,there was no justification on why I got sacked only that I need to learn more skills,but that's what an apprentice gets taught while working. I was very hard working(even worked overtime) and did 2 18 hour shifts in the space of 2 weeks,should I have been sacked and shall I complain about the illegal hours,thanks?

Our Response:
You can complain about your apprenticeship hours via the link here . However, you would have to read the terms and conditions of your contract in order regarding whether you are on a probationary period and what the terms of the period is. If you are on a six month probationary period, then your employer can dismiss you within this term. Please see link here , which will explain all you need to know. If you have any further queries, or this does not answer your question in full, you may wish to give ACAS a call.

Hi, my son is currently completing the second year of a building apprenticeship. He was asked to work overtime on sat 23rd Dec a non-working day. He agreed but drank too much at a Christmas party and so was unfit for work! He informed his boss who has now told him not to turn in for work at all. He hasn’t been paid since and has requested a meeting which looks like he will be sacking my son!Is this reasonable dismissal?
Joanne - 2-Jan-18 @ 10:18 PM
Hi my son has been working as an apprentice for 3 years. (Industrial electrician) He’s on his final year he only has to go until September. He said he gets bullied on a daily basis and things are getting harder. He wants to learn but the bosses other colleagues are not helping him/showing him. Which therefore means that college one day a week isn’t going well as he’s not learning. He’s learnt bits but should’ve further on with the things in his college work. They keep saying cheap labour etc most of the time he’s on cleaning up duties. They have employed more apprenticeships (who are in fact some of the bosses sons) they have the time and paitence to show them but dont help my son. Even the other apprentices are taunting him etc calling him crap. The bosses keep saying the end is neigh and you won’t last till February. He’s in his final year and I feel like he’s wasted 3-4 years of his life to bring them cheap labour. They send him a training centre where they are all friends with the tutors and they all go out drinking etc so the tutors keep saying stuff to him. They send the other apprentice a proper college. I’ve told him speak up speak to someone above but he said they are all friends and there is no one else he can talk to. The first few years were ok they had other staff that helped him and showed him things but they got rid of them as they said he can do your job now for cheaper. Now he is getting to the stage he can’t take it anymore. The works Christmas do all they do is take the mick out of him. He’s always on time he never uses all his holidays and hardly ever has a day off sickness. Things are becoming unbearable and I keep saying if you leave you won’t have the qualifications and you will not get a job doing it. Which is why he’s stuck it for so long but he can’t take anymore

Leroy - Your Question:
My son is 17 and since September he's been on an apprenticeship with a self employed building contractor. Before September he was working cash in hand on a trail basis which then lead to the apprenticeship.Occasionally they work with his old boss who specialises in brickwork and on Friday last week an incident has occurred between my son and his employers old boss which has resulted in my son's sacking. On the day my son had been left alone with this other guy (who technically has nothing to do with my son's apprenticeship) and he asked my son to attach a hosepipe close to a newly built breeze block wall. On doing so my son's lost his balance put his hand on the wall causing 2 of the blocks to loosen and fall onto this guy who was crouching on the other side of it. He wasn't injured but he's gone mad calling my son dangerous and saying he isn't safe to work alongside. Today after his one day a week at college my son has met up with his boss so he could get my son's side of the story (he wasn't contacted for work yesterday). However it turned out that the decision had already been made as after telling my son he could have been dismissed on the spot (basically on the say so of his old boss as he himself wasn't present) he'd decided for my son's future employments sake that my son should sign a letter he'd already typed up saying he'd quit his apprenticeship and thanking him for the opportunity, which he did. Clearly this old boss has some influence over my son's employer, be it financial or whatever and I feel very aggrieved that he effectively has lost my son his job that he was enjoying for something that was basically an accident. It doesn't seem right or fair in anyway. Would you agree? Do we have any options, morally or legally?

Our Response:
As your son would still be in the probationary period of his employment, there is little you/he can do. An employer doesn't have to give a reason why he wishes to dismiss a person, please see JobSite link here. Your son was under no obligation to sign a letter if it was an untruth, he can request this is retracted (should he wish).

My daughter is 17 years old just left school as she needs to be either in an apprenticeship or training until she 18 years old, she opted for an apprenticeshipthinking it would be better then goingto college as shewould be paid whilst training however she works a full weeks work 37.5 hours then shes expected to do her course work im the evening when she gets home and attend training one Saturday per month, I thought that an apprentice, the work place had to give you a day in lieu once a week to do college/course work. With doing both she is effectively working more hours than me for £3.50 an hour. Please can someone inform me of the law for apprenticeship as her boss is now saying that if she can't cope he will get rid of her, ifI'm honest it would be a good thing if this is how apprenticesare treated and are expected to do

My son is 20 years old he has been sacked today on. the grounds of him and his co worker mucking around on the floor during work however this is done by all staff members on the floor. His supervisor / boss informed him that both his name and his co worker are always being mentioned in the office he had to take action he stated to my son that he was half way through a final written warning and was u.sure if he was gonna sack him or not however he choose to sack him and make an example out of him that there will be a zero tolerance now of mucking about on the floor. His co worker has got away scott free as he has worked there for 2years plus no displinary procedures where followed by this company no warnings where given to either my son or his co worker to stop mucking around . .Has my son got any rights ?

Autumn- Your Question:
On Saturday my daughter was sacked unexpectedly ,she has been working in her apprenticeship for over 6 months and there has been no indication that they were unhappy with her in any way , they took on a new apprentice last week and told my daughter to leave that day because she didn't show enough motivation and they had heard that she was unhappy working threre , she has had no verbal warnings or written warnings she signed a contract but was never given a copy , could you please advise me on how we can take this further and who with , my daughter is very upset but now has no job or money for apparently not a good reason

Our Response:
Unfortunately, your daughter would have to have worked for her employer for a minimum period of two years before she qualifies for the right to claim unfair dismissal at a tribunal. You can see more via the gov.uk link here .

An apprentice has not completed their college work on time and will now not get their NVQ qualification.They have been given extra time off work and help with college tutors in order for them to finish their course work, but have still not handed it in, as an employer are we able to terminate their contract on this basis.We know that we have to give reasonable notice and pay if required.
Me - 7-Nov-17 @ 10:22 AM
I’ve just ‘been let go’ of an apprenticeship because I missed two days of work without contacting them at all because I had a family crisis and they said ‘it’s the last straw’ and had to get rid of me. But my contract doesn’t run out till May 2018 and I was wondering surely there must be some sort of compensation as I’m now out of a job and have a daughter to provide for.

han - Your Question:
My boyfriend has a plumbing apprenticeship, he is being underpaid massively. He gets £135.00 a week he started nearly 2 years and has only just started college. Every time he has brought up his money they has complained and said they cant pay him anymore money or they would have to sack him as he doesn't make enough money for the company. They complained about him not having driving experience so he got a car and has to pay for this weekly but they are now complaining he isn't buying enough tools even though they told him they would buy him them and he has said he can't afford a car and tools with the money he is on! I need advise on what to do because it is making him really upset as they are making him upset as they make snide comments about him.

Our Response:
Your boyfriend would have to have a look at the terms and conditions of his employment contract to see a) how long his apprenticeship should last b) his salary c) whether it specifies who buys the tools d) details about his college course. Only if your boyfriend's employer has breached the terms of the contract has your boyfriend any recourse for complaint. By signing the contract your boyfriend has agreed to the terms his employer has laid down, including wages etc. If his employer is in breach of the contract, then your boyfriend would have to bring this up with his employer informally at first and if the situation is not rectified, then he can complain in writing, please see link here.

Hi there,I have been informed by my sons tutor that his boss has cancelled my sons apprenticeship as a sous chef ages ago, as he is not competent enough. But he is still working there under the assumption that his apprenticeship is still ongoing. He is 19 years old. Should his wages then have been changed to minimum wage for his age bracket instead of the apprentice wage?Many thanksStephanie

Our Response:
If your son is no longer an apprentice, then he should no longer be receiving an appenticeship wage and should be on the national minimum wage for his age. Your son should speak with his boss directly regarding this matter to see where he stands.

Rics - Your Question:
My sister has been dismissed from her apprenticeship after only working there for 5 days. The reasons they gave were because she was 'not enthusiastic enough and did not show initiative but all the children warmed up to her quickly and she was the only one that actually was interacting with them? They also were giving her lunch break 2 hours into the shift meaning she was working a further 7 hours without a break. They didn't ask her to sign a contract nor asked for her bank details to pay her. I feel like she has been treated unfairly and was dismissed with no warning. Is she entitled to take this further i.e a tribunal and is it compulsory for them to pay her for the 5 days she worked?

Our Response:
Your sister would not be able to take this matter further, as it is likely your sister was still in her probationary period, please see link here , which means her employer can dismiss her and likewise, she can decide the job is not for her. This means each side cannot make a complaint against the other. However, she should be paid for the work she has done.

JLaw - Your Question:
Hi my daughter has been dismissed from her apprenticeship at a hair salon. She has been there since may last year. She went in to work as normal this morning and when she got there the boss asked to speak to her. He said he was letting her go due to her attitude and the way she spoke to other members of staff yet also mentioned that he might not have the budget for her but then didn't mention anymore about budget then said he was happy for her to carry out the rest of her shift if she wanted (she said she'd rather not) is this the correct way of dismissing an apprentice

Our Response:
Much depends upon whether your daughter had a probationary period as part of her employment contract and whether she was still in the terms of her probationary period. She would have to read the terms and conditions of her employment contract to find this out. A probationary period usually lasts from three-six months. The aim is for the employer to assess the employee's ability to meet certain performance levels. Likewise, it also means the employee can assess whether they too are suitable for the job. It means both the employer and the employee, have no recourse to complain if either does not think the position is suitable, please see link here . However, if your daughter has been there longer than six months, then the employer must show they’ve a valid reason that they can justify acted reasonably in the circumstances, please see link here . As specified in the article, in order to sack someone legally, you have to establish fair grounds for their dismissal. There is a range of factors that might be considered fair grounds. These include, for example, poor conduct, or an inability to perform the job properly. The answers regarding whether your daughter's employer can dismiss her, will be outlined in the terms and conditions of her employment contract.

Dot - Your Question:
I was on an apprenticeship at an electrical retailer. I have been offered no college or coursework just working in the shop for a year as an "apprentice". I have been driving all over the country doing deliveries alone and left the handbrake off of the van which consequently crashed so I have been sacked. Should I have been driving at 18 on my own as I have only held my licence for a few months

Our Response:
Once you are 18, you are classed as an adult and once you pass your driving test, you are deemed to be responsible to drive on the roads alone. If you were put on a 'probationary' period (you would have to see the terms of your contract), then your employer can let you go before the end of the probationary period. You can also be dismissed for misconduct. As specified in the article, employers are required to have a written set of disciplinary and dismissal procedures, which must be provided to all employees. You can see more via the ACAS link here. If you require any further advice, you may wish to give ACAS a call.
