I've been sacked from work after being told to write an incident form about an aggressive supervisor. So I wrote the damn incident form and roughly two weeks after i was called in for my last shift there and was met with a rude supervisor who had clearly been offended that his colleague (the aggressive supervisor) had been suspended and felt it was my incident form that had done the trick. So after that I wasn't being called in for shifts at all - the rude supervisor wasn't even texting me back about shifts etc.. so today nearly a month and half after my last shift I received a letter from the company telling me that " given the circumstances my engagement with the company has been terminated with immediate effect". Completely oblivious as to what I'm supposed to have done that I've been sacked with immediate effect and disgusted at the hierarchy *****y atmosphere there, I don't know what to do nor if this is unfair?

It seems that you could have a case for unfair dismissal

You dont give much detail about yourself or your job .

You really need to be interviewed. Take all your documents with you.

Either see- post code

Citizens advice (not specialist), but they can interview and give you basic advice
https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/ab...advice/advice/
.
Better would be your local law centre.
http://www.lawcentres.org.uk/i-am-looking-for-advice

Ask them to look into whistleblowing. You need evidence including copies of your form plus any correspondence or documents relating top your job.

Public Concern at Work

Telephone: 020 7404 6609


Alternatively either of the above, but depending on your company, then use the official complaints procedure. Either of the above can at least check things were done properly.

Sometimes if you have insurance you cna get free legal advice from credit cards, insurance or bank accounts.

You have nothing to lose.

Let it go. Bosses like them are pretty much the same bosses that win every court case against them. Never underestimate psychos. Get yourself another job with a boss that will respect you.

(Or be your own boss)

There's obviously much more to it than this, but if you don't fill in the detail, no-one's really going to be able to help you. What was the incident which led to this, to start with?

I agree.
Speak to the CAB or someone. You dont give much detail though, so i cant really give you any more advice than that.

Well I was told to write an incident form regarding one of the supervisors; he got super aggressive with one of the customers and I was under strict instructions to write a detailed and honest recollection. The following shift I was told he was suspended and was consistently referred to as little miss A* in English and was taunted for my incident form. The letter stated that"given the circumstances, we regret to inform you that we are terminating your engagement with the company." Appalled at the unprofessional behaviour at the shop. Sports direct btw - & also whilst I was there, I was overworked, tire, losing a tremendous amount of weight - despite doing 3-4 hours a week! I am only 17 years of age hence I expected a level of respect and decency!!

Whilst I was there, I couldn't believe (as a 17year old) the playground antics that ADULTS twice my age were doing! I felt intimidated by the supervisors and their superior attitude they had and the little power they carried.

PRSOM. :sigh:

But seriously, do you think in all honesty that they would even stand a remote chance in winning if they tried? :rolleyes:

You do have a case for unfair dismissal. Sometimes Its actually easier to get big companies (particularly ones with reputation such as sports direct) to give compensation than smaller ones(mums bestfriend works in small claims court and sees this thing loads of the time). Can always speak to a claims company and see if you have any ground to stand on!

How long had you been working at Sports Direct before your contact was terminated? And are you on a permanent contract or not?

With respect, you cannot possibly make such a sweeping statement as 'you have a case for unfair dismissal' based on the facts presented by the OP alone: there's far more too it than that.

Based on the case the OP has presented alone on this thread it would most likely be classed as unfair dismissal. There will obviously be more to it but hence why I suggested going speaking to a solicitor

I understand what you're saying, but I do think with only one side of a case presented, it's impossible to say whether or not there is a case of unfair dismissal. You're right thought to suggest that she seek further advice on it

As PQ has posted, Sports Direct is quite a bogeyman at the moment, so I would have though their personnel departments at HQ are quite keen to deal with complaints like these, lest the complainant goes to the Daily Mail with it (I'm not suggesting you do, by the way)

Based on the Commons report it might be worth the OP contacting http://www.gla.gov.uk/i-am-a/i-am-a-worker/
