  1. I do understand 5hrs is a long time to keep shop shut. It was the first day of opening after the NI exec declared the business non-essential (and forcibly closed it) no senior management inspected the store, no senior management talked to the store manager to discuss safety concerns, the shop was in no state to open to public (hardly any prices on products, no stock in fridges etc) The shop was opened for two hours in morning, and closed for delivery (which was twice as big as a Xmas delivery, there was literally no white wine in 7 fridges) when you are scared you mak
  2. So finally got my dismissal letter today, states I’m to appeal within 7days citing fully my reasons for doing so. Second line of letter states I was asked if I wanted accompaniment to meeting which I refused. This is the first outright lie as I was not informed a meeting was happening, I was on shift and was at no time offered accompaniment because it was a fact finding meeting. allegations; serious negligence which causes or might cause loss, damage or injury to the business and it’s reputation 6hours loss of trading taking part in activities which re
  3. Thanks, they said they will send a letter which will state my options for appeal. I will post it here as soon as I get it!
  4. Certainly do! It’s says When orders are coming in. Shops are to remain closed, to facilitate this where possible orders are to come in through an alternative door. This is to allow us to limit the number of people in store. all screen shot, I did keep shop closed for 5hours though.
  5. Thank you very much, trying to stay calm but very very angry. I will post letter once I receive it!
  6. No hearing, no allegations in writing, they’ve given me nothing just told me within two hours that I’m dismissed. no chance to be accompanied. They just said I’d get a letter in the post. I wil try and get a copy of policy. outcome, I dont know. I should get my job back. In the past I know that the company think nothing of paying out large settlements as it’s happened with several higher up in management.
  7. I was the manager of an off license. We reopened on mon 30th, I received a very large delivery which we weren’t expecting (and I wasn’t told about until 2hrs before by my line manager) all managers received a text from regional manager which stated when deliveries are coming in shops are to be closed. He didn’t ring this info in, I just read the text. When I saw how big del was (completely covered the floor, could barely move around it) I kept my shutters closed and proceeded to pack delivery away. The store remained closed and we lost 5hrs trading time.
