Only seven days till i get to put my case for unfair dismissal to the employment tribunal and i am feeling confident that justice will be done, mind you winning the case don’t make up for the stress and shit i had to go through but at least they will be admitting guilt and i will get my good character restored,The ACAS people have been negotiating with the company that unfairly dismissed me to get some sort of settlement to drop the case but the offers have been insulting to say the least, i suppose i was lucky to find employment as quick as i did after a month of shit and having “Dismissed ” for the first time in over 15 years of doing this job ( With some top class references i must add) on my record ain’t what i call nice.
So the countdown begins to me getting my good name,respect & integrity restored & lets face it, it is my good fortune to have found employment so the time i was unemployed should not be taken into account when any offer of recompense is made but the company have come nowhere near to making good their mistake,It kind of makes me think that they ain’t taking the whole thing as serious as i am!
That month i was out of work was one of the worst months in one of the worst years i have lived through what with all the stress of losing both mine & Mrs B’s dads then the shit last November topped off with getting the sack was a lot to cope with,not that the company was a caring bunch at the best of times ,Anyroad another insulting offer today and another decline from me,i have informed my man of the ammount i will settle at and a reasonable sum it is in my view,so hopefully the messing about will stop and we can ether settle or meet up at the tribunal to hammer it out.
I had kind of put the whole thing out of my mind for a few weeks but now that things are getting nearer to getting sorted i can feel the bitterness i felt at the time creeping back so i will be well chuffed to see the back of the whole thing as i suppose the company will,not a good time on both sides i reckon.
Anyroad i am looking forward to getting the whole fucking mess sorted and to get on with my new job without having this shit around anymore.
