How Community helped me get my job back

This blog was written by one of our members anonymously.

I have written this blog to share my experience of how Community supported me through a very difficult time. 

Following an incident at work, I was suspended from my job. A meeting was arranged to discuss the incident, where I was supported by a Community Representative. Although the meeting went well, unfortunately I was dismissed, but with the right to appeal.

The appeal hearing was lengthy, but I had strong support from Community’s Rep and the outcome was that I was offered my job back!

I am very grateful to the Community Reps who supported me at the meetings. Without their professionalism, advice and knowledge, and the backing of my union, I believe I would have had little chance of getting my job back.

If you’re not already a member, my advice is to sign up and join. You never know what can go wrong at work and you find that you need the help of people who know the rights and wrongs of the workplace.
