Am I been unfairly dismissed?

I started a new job last week and unfortunately on my second day a member of my family passed away so took a few days off... now after working there for last few days I had a call saying I had my contract terminated due to attendance, is that fair?

    Doesn't seem fair but probably not illegal.

    As you have just started the job they don't need a reason to terminate your contract - UK rules

    It seems that you "are been" fired for bad grammar.
