LOL calm down guy, this is the real world, not LA Law Smile | :) Before you "sue" anyone you have to establish they have done something wrong. While we can all agree the OP's employer is morally wrong and a POS, neither of those are in breach of any laws thus neither are actionable in court or anywhere else. He had no contract so is bound only by statutory terms, and one of those terms, in UK law, is that you only get a notice period after working a month. He hadn't worked a month so doesn't gain that which means he can be terminated without notice. If they were making him redundant rather than firing him redundancy rights only really come in after two years, before that you have very few rights. In the UK if you have only worked less than a month and have no written contract the only legal right you have is to be paid for the days you worked, which he was. So I don't quite know what you think he is going to go to court about and have a jury trial over...something only reserved for the most serious of cases due to costs. Likewise punitive damages? Something else very very rarely awarded by any court in the UK, you only get your actual damages which in the OP's case is £0 as he was paid for the work he did and he got his property back.
