This is a long 'un. BARE WITH ME!
So I have been working in a coffee shop for over a week, having done shifts for a total of over 15 hours. The manager promised to take me on with no experience and said he would train me.
He called the first two shifts 'trials' and then said the rest would be training. He handed me a contract which he never asked for again until I gave it to him today.
Every shift, I was doing the same things and being shown and re-shown how to make the same things or watch how other people did the same things I had already done and been taught to do. I was cleaning, washing, serving and using the till, all of this UNPAID.
Today, the manager randomly gave me £5 as I was leaving, saying that it was a tip, which I had never had before. However, what frustrates me more is that when I got home, he texted me to say that I was not right for the job as I did not have enough experience! (when he took me on fully knowing that I did not).
Anyway, does he have the legal right to do this? What should I do?

No, you must be paid at least minimum wage for the hours you work. Contact their superior or your local job centre
