    Well I wil get 5 monts pay when I leave and 6 if I sign before the case is presented to some kind of institution who has to declare it is a valid case
    unfair dismissal won't work if you "sign" and "voluntarily" leave the company with a large payout.

    look at it this way - they give you 5-6 months paid notice and a large payout.

    f*** it.

    take the money. hunt for another job. don't put in any overtime. don't work weekends. take all your annual leave. work your hours and no more. get a written recommendation right now.

    then just cruise until your next job comes along.

    look, either way you are not going to enjoy working there any more. time to accept that and move on. yes, it's a bitter pill to swallow but too bad - it's there. swallow it and move on.

    good luck.

    The problem is I am extremly loyal. They say that about dogs, but they haven't seen me in action. Off course the most obvious thing to do is get an other job asap. But some of my colleagues have become very dear friends in the last couple of years. And finally my chef (who should have been sacked years ago) goes away. Now I have the opportunity to show them exactly what my true potential is. I think a lot depends on the next meeting with the director. If they really want to sack me because I have been ill so often in the last year, I'm willing to go, but then they would have to give me a ****load of money.
    At this point I am willing to go to court to keep my job, but that can chang off course.
    It's really a case of mind versus heart. :shrug:

    oh I hear where you're coming from m8, really I do and I sympathise and empathise - I have soooo been there - but truly honestly, as soon as more colleagues leave it wont feel like "home" anymore and just a place to earn a buck or two.

    If you truly do have "potential" show it by moving on and taking your skills to a company that truly appreciates you. Be loyal to yourself first. You are the only one that will look after you. The company quite frankly doesnt give a ****.

    These guys do not appreciate you.

    They want to sack you.

    Remind me again why you are loyal to them?


    (ps I quit my last job giving 8 (yes 8 - count them) months notice because I felt loyal and the ****ers truly screwed me over when I left - I should have just given them my required one single month - it wouldnt have changed a thing).

    Well my loyalty is mostly towards my colleagues instead of the company/boss. Like if my boss wants me to work overtime he can foget it (unless he pays me offcourse) But if a (good)colleague ask me to do something after 5 I'll do it.
    Anyone with any brain left would advise to leave. But somehow I can't get my brain to accept that option. Too bad you can't do a reformat on a brain. Perhaps some more would clear my mind. mm I guess not

    What I'd do is

    1. Start looking for the Ideal Job - you've got six months or so

    2. Show your bosses what you can do, they might change their minds

    If you've made a lot of friends they'll continue to be your friend even if your working somewhere else.

    I wouldn't go to court unless I had too, that kind of stuff tends to follow you around

    Off course you are all right. I am looking for jobs. BUT, if I stay I will become head of my own department since my chef gets kicked as well. But I can't decide what to do before they give me the reason for laying me off (in writing off course). I am really curious what BS reason they can come up with. I've gathered a whole can of whoop ass in the last year, just in case something like this would happen :hammer:

    Just to close this deal. I WON!!!! :twisted:
    They called the whole thing off on the last day before it was going to court.
    Perhaps it also had something to do with the fact that the management of the company initiated a save-Brian's-job-campaign :D
    So I didn't get a great bag of money, but I did get to keep my job.
    Wooot for me
