Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What reasons have they given for the dismissal exactly?
By submitting an appeal your only desired outcome is to overturn the dismissal and get reinstated. So if you do not want your job back then in many ways there is no point in appealing. However, if you simply want to ensure that you do not get a bad reference, you may still consider appealing only based on that, making it clear you do not seek reinstatement, just get a decent reference.
The main grounds for appeal here would be that the decision does not warrant the offence. An employer does need to justify that the penalty they issue is one which a reasonable employer would have arrived at in the circumstances and in this case considering hat happened, your length of service and good disciplinary record, dismissal is too harsh of an outcome.

what you could do is still appeal the dismissal, if you win then you get reinstated, after which you resign immediately (or when required). If the appeal is unsuccessful you can approach them with an alternative, such as issuing a reference even if the dismissal is not upheld
