I was hoping someone out there can give me some advice.
I know someone who worked in an Asda Warehouse and has been dismissed for Gross Misconduct. The story is...
His partner used his discount card (and has been for 2years) to get some shopping. But she used it twice in one day, and it flagged up. Because she was with her friend he was susspened. When he was called in for a meeting he explained that she had used the card for herself, but they where trying to say that she had used it for her friend which was untrue and they had no eveidence. So they told him to go away and come back for a disiplinary hearing, so he went back, to be told he was sacked with immediate effect, apparatly they had new eveidence that he had not nomintated his partener to use the discount card (he had not sent her name to be added onto it) he had only got her to sign the card, he didnt realise that he was meant to do this, but apparantly when he got the card he had signed to say he has to add nominated users, oh also one of the other reasons was that "they believe she had used the card for her friend."
He is appealing against it but if he doesnt get his job back does anyone know if he has a ground to stand on for a tribunal????
Any help please
