I was dismissed misconduct the report by my manager

Customer Question

I was dismissed for gross misconduct the report by my manager includes evidence that predates my employment. There were issues around Facebook posts. An allegation that I swore at a colleague that surfaced after I raised academic concerns after the initial Facebook allegations. The letter of dismissal also says that the Chair of the committee is discounting some evidence and also dresses me down for "showing contempt throughout the investigation" I don't feel like I have had a fair hearing.
