No, but my line manager has forewarned me. I am alleged to have shouted been aggressive and tried to use the company's name for personal gain. My annoyance is that they are using a personal telephone call - which I did not instigate - against me, and the transcript is in their posession without my knowledge or consent and they are reliant upon it
I have received a letter. They have offered me 2 options. The first to accept the transcript and be disciplined on that, or to not accept and give my employers permission to request a recording of the telephone call. I think that is wrong as it was a personal call to my mobile! Surely they have no rights to my personal life?
I think you have missed my point. The company cold called me. I did not slander my employer simply stated I worked there and craftily asked for more discount. Why has my employer the right - or the cold calling company the right to provide - to access to either recordings or transcripts of my personal telephone calls? Why should I accept they are allowed to discipline me on a transcript supplied by a company who basically were unhappy I didn't buy a policy with them?
