    I'm not too bothered about the actuall sacking, as the fact that i was sacked.

    It's a stain on my recond and will put off future employers.

    I had a call yesterday from and agency, asking why the reason i left. i told them but it was embarrasing, i've never been sacked before =/

    As it turns out i have an interview on monday from them anyway, selling IT systems and servers. sounds like cold calling, but a job's a job. the pay's crap but can make tons in commision.

    Yeah, we tend to do that. Im sure you'll find another job quickly. I would find something closer to where you live.

    There was some written stuff, but only detailing i was late and why i was late, no warnings or anything.

    May be a good idea to appeal the dismissal and if that's no good, take a look at this:

    www.employmenttribunals.gov.uk

    How long did you work there for? Have you had previous recorded disciplinary meetings? Are you in a Union?

    Yeah, i know, it's understandable why. doesn't stop it being demeaning.

    If it makes you feel any better, being escorted off the premises is standard
    procedure at many companies. In fact when I was laid off years ago from a
    great job, my supervisor had to escort me to the door and she was crying!
    So don't take that personally- it's probably just a rule in the company handbook.

    Have 'The Annoying Devil' showup at your forumer work place or better yet, dressup as 'The Annoying Devil' and protest outside of worksite.

    I can understand why i was walked out, as it's an insurance company and i suppose if i was spitefull i could grab some sensetive information or something. it's just very embarrasing.

    Yeah, they knew that transportation was crap with the floods and everything (seriously, one day all but 2 trains were cancelled, and it's a REALLY busy station). I dunno, guess they expected me to be magic.

    Not sure what i'm going to do yet, i'll see how it goes, and see what they wrote in the minutes when i get a copy.

    I was actually going to start taking driving lessons soon so i wouldn't have to take publictransport. guess i can't afford to now.

    As a department manager, I wouldnt have fired you nor had you escorted out of the building. I have fired a lot people in my last two years but never had them walked out. Im sure they know how the transportation is right? I would put in an official complaint with someone higher in your company and explain the situation. Just dont admit to sleeping in that day!

    6 time officially.

    1 of those i slept in, which i fully hold my hand up to.

    4 of those were due to public transport being ****e.

    1 of those my team leader never told me what shift we were on the next week, so i came in on the wrong time (even my rota was wrong, so i shouldn't be blamed for that.)
