Emmerdale fans were up in arms this evening (March 4), as they witnessed Al Chapman heartlessly sack Priya Sharma with immediate effect.
Al, played by Michael Wildman, was convinced Priya (Fiona Wade) had sabotaged his business plan and angrily booted her out of the company.
Priya was defeated and packed up her belongings, clearing her desk before heading to the park with a bottle of wine to drown her sorrows.
However, watching from home, viewers pointed out Priya could easily sue for unfair dismissal, as Al had no grounds to sack her.
One Twitter user wrote: "Al fired Priya based on what exactly? Literally, the whole village knows what he did & why would she risk the business knowing her Brother would also stand to lose? Priya could totally sue him for unfair dismissal or whatever."
"Please let Prya sue them for everything they have for unfair dismissal," added a second.
And a third wrote: "How can Pryia get the sack! Isn't it a family firm, and she has a stake in it."
The cheating businessman has been taking care of Kim Tate's (Claire King) affairs while she's out of town, and was hoping to win over a new client.
Unfortunately, when the client – who owns an energy drinks brand – arrived in the office, she revealed she knew everything about his philandering past.
It recently emerged Al had been caught up in a twisted love triangle, asking his girlfriend Priya to marry him at the same time as secretly dating Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb).
The potential client was sickened to hear about his affair, and told Al, in no uncertain terms, she would never do business with him, having been emotionally scarred by her own husband's infidelity.
When the client stormed out, Al turned on Priya, assuming she had told the client everything in an act of revenge.
After the brutal firing, a forlorn Priya ran into Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) who confessed to telling the client about Al's womanizing ways.
Can Priya win her way back into the business, now the truth is out?
Emmerdale airs on weekdays at 7pm on ITV, with an extra helping on Thursdays at 8pm.
