Wrongful Dismissal Under 2 years
« on: March 23, 2017, 05:30:56 PM »

I was recently the victim of a wrongful dismissal but because I had only been in the position for one year I was unable to take any appropriate action via ACAS.

I was in a team of 4 in an office role and there was no management on site. I excelled in my work and always showed commitment. Two of the staff turned against me. They stopped all communication with me which made my job impossible. When I approached the management with this issue I was sacked.

The two staff members had already lied about my conduct to the management.

Now I have this enormous blemish on my CV and I am finding it very difficult to explain what happened and I'm being turned down for new posts because of this. I am now unemployed.

I feel very hard done by and this has affected my health.

Previous advice on this matter has been about how to negotiate this issue in an interview but I am also finding that it is a barrier at the application stages.

I would appreciate some help in this matter. Not only in terms of finding a new job but also concerning any possible action I can take against the company and/or the people concerned.

I'm in the UK.
