    Basically at work, theres a guy that picks on me so I said I don't want to work with him anymore. Everyone said thats fine, and they stopped rostering us together.

    Except last week, the guy I normally work with went on his annual leave and the guy that picks on me arranged to cover him. Obviously I complained about this because the management had gone back on their word.

    He was angry that I complained and we got into a heated discussion, and at one point I said "you could be a thief for all I know" (we are handling money and you kind of need to trust the other person you're working with), the conversation ended with him being very angry and deciding not to talk to me anymore.

    Anyway, now I find out that he's gone to the management and put in complaints about me. He said that I said directly "you are a thief" and so his complaint was that I am discriminating against him.

    Can they fire me for that? Is it discrimination? If I tell them what I really said ("you COULD be a thief for all I know") is that equally as bad?

    I don't know what the rules are about these things...
