My husband won't appeal after being sacked unfairly to protect his pride

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband was sacked after a fight with a colleague.

He was treated unfairly and should have appealed, but his pride got the better of him.

He found another job but it’s farther away, the pay isn’t great and he hates it. The company he now works for is a customer of his old employer.

My husband’s former colleagues tell him to try to get his old job back.

I’m scared because if he asks for his old job back but is unsuccessful, and his new company hears about it, they might sack him too.

I’m 38 and my husband’s 40. I want to support him in the best way I can because he’s struggling and carries a lot of guilt.

DEIDRE SAYS: We don’t have to like everyone in our workplace, but we do have to establish good working relationships and that may occasionally include ignoring rude behaviour and swallowing our pride.

Your husband has learned a hard lesson, and it may not be too late to appeal if he feels he has been unfairly treated.

If he wants advice on workplace rights he can contact Acas (acas.org.uk, 0300 123 1100). In the meantime my support pack Help For Job Seekers may help.
