I have a preliminary, Scotland, I have a preliminary hearing

Customer Question

Hi, I have a preliminary
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Scotland
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I have a preliminary hearing on the 22/09/20. I am taken my ex employer to a tribunal for unfair dismissal. I had a written agreement with them to put me through an apprenticeship but they made me redundant during the pandemic. they said they made me redundant but when the boss phoned me to let me know it sounded more like I was getting sacked as he told me I wasn't good enough at my job and I was not where I should be at for the stage of my career
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: since letting me go the boss of the company has followed me to jobs I have worked on and proceeded to take videos of me while working else where

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hi thank you for your message, did you want to know if he can use the videos in the tribunal?
Expert:  Jeremy Aldermartin replied 4 days ago.

Hi thank you for your message, sorry to hear about this situation without a response to my earlier question I can only provide a general answer. In terms of the videos your ex employer should not be able to use those in the employment hearing as they are not representative or relevant to your employment claim against your ex employer. In relation to him following you around you can report him to the police for harassment. I trust this helps and thank you for using this service.
