Gross misconduct - please help! watch

    • Thread Starter


    (Original post by Doog a las)
    First time poster here guys, I've been browsing the previous threads looking for answers but I need some more help.
    I have recently been dismissed for gross misconduct from my post in large retail firm as a face to face adviser. The disciplinary has been taken place and the conclusion has been reached. I admitted to what I had done, (double credit check), it was quite cut and dry and unfortunately classes under fraud under the code of conduct.

    I need some advice on what to do going forward. I'm currently in my last year at university (accounting believe it or not) with some healthy volunteering and paid experience. It was a stupid misjudgement from me and I should have known better and ended the transaction. But I'm guessing I can't go into financial services and the like, I'm at a total loss of what my possible options are for future. I feel like my life is ruined and I'm losing my mind. Any potential advice would be much appreciated!
    What's a double credit check?

    Has this led to a conviction beyond the place you were working, or have you simply been dismissed from your job with no other action?

    Customer declined product on one system. But it passed him on the other system for some reason. They made clear that I have had compliance training and should be aware and counted it under GM. There's no conviction however, gross dismissal no further action. I will appeal but I don't think I'll have much luck.
    You deserved to get fired because you're terrible at explaining what you have done wrong.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
