1.My employer dismissed me in disciplinary way because of language in the email to the director, it wasn't any vulgar language, just words: manipulation, lying, forcing me to sign etc. I never got any warnings, never missed one work day (I worked with this company 2 years and 1 month as a security officer). During investigation I apologized for words which could hurt the director, but I was dismissed anyway.
2. As a second reason for dismiss me the company used the record of appraisal meeting made by me. I recorded this meeting with 2 reasons:
a) not good understanding English language
b) I felt unsafe in the workplace because of harassment by polish community (I am Polish too).
Company didn't help me in no one my official complain about this, the polish broke in to my beg, stolen my money (everything is on voice record - I reported this to Garda, but they cooperating with company and did nothing during 1,5 year - so I felt extrimly unsafe in the workplace, was very difficult to proof anything so I recorded every my step, even appraisal meeting. (Is many dangerous circumstances which lead me to record for preventing myself - plan to give me in work tablet rape, just one of my friend told me about this to prevent me (also I have recordings on which one of the polish worker is telling me about the plan against me). There is lot of bad things, I was uncomfortable worker for my employer, that's why they found any reason to dismiss me.
During investigation I submitted to the HR the audio record from appraisal to show that the manipulation and lying by director took place. Company had different interpretation of that conversation and they dismiissed me also with the reason of recording.
My case is in the Equality Tribunal. Before the claim to the Tribunal the Right Commissioner did not upheld my complaint and he wrote among other, that my "apologize was meaningless and language used in the email were shameful". The Commissioner even did not read the conversation from appraisal meeting which lead me to write this email to the director. hat's why I believe he had no idea why I used those words.
Now, with the disciplinary record I have very big problem to get any good job. I looking for solicitor which could help me in my query. Do you thing, that I have any chance to win the case?
And how should I defend myself?
Thank you for your time,
