I worked for a retail store and was found out giving friends

Customer Question

I worked for a retail store and was found out giving friends and family discount they should not have got. I was sacked and paid back£1250.00 they said I owed. Since then the line managers have told every detail of my sacking and they also told them today they were getting the police involved yet thy still havent cashed my cheque and told staff I would probably have a criminal record. My concern is I have a degree in ICT and this would damage my chances of getting a job also I thought this matter (as I was told) was confidencal .Lastly at the time I was suffering from severe anxiety attacks and OCD and taking strong medication my employers knew this and should not have put me on the tills.I know I did wrong but I am putting my health at even more harm the more stories I hear.FRA
