Customer Question

On thursday my boss sent me an e-mail asking to see me. When i met with him he produced a letter whci stated that my job was being put a risk of redundancy. He then asked me to see him on Friday for further discussions. I was very upset when I got home from work and needed to speak to someone. My uncle is a barrister so i called him up and told him what was going on. His wife works in the same company as me and i suspect he may have told her as well. The next day i was given a written warning by my boss for breaching confidentiality becuase he heard that some people at work new i that my job was being put at risk of redundacy.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new 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!
