This is just a little plea for advice.. I lost my job earlier this year after 10 years with an organisation. Sacked for gross misconduct with no notice period, quite brutally. I had to go to a tribunal to get paid my entitled holiday otherwise I’d have been given only 3 days pay! I’ve admitted some faults, it wasn’t safeguarding related, just professional practice mostly for an additional role which I wasn’t allocated additional hours for so throughout it felt like the decision was in the balance. I feel I’ve been dealt with quite harshly, the union were an emotional support but I felt maybe they weren’t ‘hardball’ enough at times. I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with any lawyers who might provide an assessment for free or take a 50/50 case on? I’ve got a job already and am gradually recovering from what was an emotionally difficult time but just thought, you know the organisation should sweat a little.
