Probably because he asked a fairly personal question and got you being an elitist prick in response.

LFC don't reckon FUK is necessarily the place (evidently) but a pal has started CBT for some similarish things and seems to be going well.

That tune is deffo dodgy though

Knew someone at uni who used to make a hammock out of toilet paper to catch their shit before it hit the water…

Depends what you’re claiming for? You can try to work out potential loss of earnings. Take into account how long you think you’ll likely be out of work for? (You can claim for up to 12 months) Years of service, age, statutory loss of rights, any bonuses, pension contributions etc

Also consider how strong a case you have, employment law isn’t like criminal law. It’s not so much a case of them having to prove you did something wrong, more that they had reasonable grounds to believe you’ve done something wrong and followed the correct processes thereafter.

It’s for unfair dismissal, I worked there for almost 15 years and have been out of work for 9 weeks, I need to come up with a figure and email they guy who’s currently looking at it, I want a reference and awarded a sum of money otherwise I will go to the tribunal. I just can’t think of a reasonable figure in what to ask for. I’m 33 and was in the process of a promotion and I believe there case is weak but if I can avoid the hassle I would just take if it is worth my while.
