Good morning,After having been poorly treated at Fidelity

Customer Question

Good morning, After having been poorly treated at Fidelity Investments for a number of years, which I had referred to their HR Department in 2014, I decided that I could take no more and effectively resigned in April this year. At 55 (and exhausted) I felt that my only option was to take early retirement, and I am now living on a net salary of £1,000 per month. This is a considerable reduction from the £2,400 net plus £690 net pension contribution from Fidelity up to my departure, but the job became unbearably stressful so I felt I had no choice. I have now found out that Fidelity are making several redundancies across the department this month, for which I am certain that I would have been included. If selected, I would have been entitled to approximately £24,000 tax-free, which would have made a huge difference to me. Do you think it is possible for me to retrospectively claim a settlement - perhaps along the wrongful dismissal lines?

May I also add that the stress I encountered at Fidelity resulted in health problems which continue into retirement; I take prescribed drugs for high blood pressure, and last Friday I was rushed to hospital with chest pains and poor breathing. At one point I collapsed and was rushed into Resus with oxygen and drips, although happily it turned out to be a severe chest infection on this occasion. However, this scare has prompted me to react to the fidelity news, as I would like to provide for my family if anything happens.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards, Neil
