I work for a security company as security officer. 3 weeks now.

I've exposed illegal activity within the company, illegal operation of cctv without a cctv licence.

 

I went on the SIA site facebook, my manager saw my posts, regarding this issue.

I'm now having my probationary review looked at.

 

The company state it's not a disciplinary hearing, but I feel it is.

 

My performance is great, no complaints. Can they get rid of me, and what excuse could thay use........thanks.

Hello there.

 

Are you working in a self-employed capacity please because that's the forum you've posted on.

 

It sounds as if you've shopped them publicly for the illegal activities, am I right please?

Unless you work in the NHS you have little or no protection from dismissal for raising this matter. They can dismiss you without a proper reason until you have been employed for 2 years, the only comfort is that if you are dismissed without following the proper process you can claim for your contractual wages and holiday pay due in lieu of notice but that is about it. somewhere between a weeks and a months pay

Best bet is report the employer to ICO and SIA but not on facebook or any other public method.

If they dismiss you for bringing illegal activity ti light then it will become automatic unfair dismissal. And it won't be difficult for you to prove all the discussions your employer is having with you. Just collect the evidence and Sue them for unfair dismissal.

@ newlyn

 

Where in the OPs post do they mention all these discussions with the employer you refer to in your post? I don't see that mentioned anywhere in the OP's post

OP said his Facebook posts.were seen by his manager. That's why I thought his manager must have mentioned this in the ongoing probationary review.

 

OP should complaint this at the earliest to legal body. I don't know where to report but he can ask police and they can advise where to report.

 

This may still help him save his job as it quite looks like that OP will be terminated soon. He can still escalate the case as automatic unfair dismissal, even if he only believes that all this is happening because his manager saw his Facebook posts. Besides this keep proofs of good work done before the review started. Just keep all facts along with evidence where possible.

 

It's a civil case and decision will be made on balance of probability. So the more OP tries and gets his evidences the better it is. Even his efforts to save job and his strength of voice will away the decision if ye case went to tribunal or court.
