Corrupt or incompetent...or both
Apprentice Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – York, United Kingdom – 12 December 2018
I began what I thought was going to be an exciting career after training in a scientific field. I had previously followed a path as a serious musician and composer but felt that it was time to embrace my other passion: science.
After years of harmonious employment I was unfortunate enough to experience two unfair dismissals in one year 😞 but I pulled myself together and continued to pursue my passion.
Two weeks into my dream career path, I was pulled into a meeting out of the blue and sacked on the spot.
In short, they said I had lied and that I had tried to cover up the fact that I was dismissed from my previous employment, and that my integrity was questionable.
I literally couldn’t believe it. I worked so hard for this, paying thousands of pounds for a course as a mature student (I’m in my early 30s) while working to support myself: there’s no way I would do anything to jeopardise this opportunity. I’m an intelligent, switched-on kind of person, fair and honest - I would never lie about that kind of thing.
I appealed, telling this story. They dismissed my appeal and said there was nothing more I could do about it.
They were right: I have absolutely NO GROUNDS to do anything about it.
STAY WELL AWAY
