    sacked for being off sick 30th Sep 06 at 12:38 PM
    hello every1 what can i do,i was recently sacked whilst being signed off sick by doctor,rec'd letter from employer during the week i was off sick.I was previously given a verbal warning for lateness due to the clocking in clock being approx 10 mins fast. When clocked in,my watch and everyone elses stating i was infact 3-5 mins early i did mention this to supervisor at the time.The employer stated in dismissal letter i was warned in verbal warning if i had any more time off,I would clearly remember if the warning stated anything about absence when the warning was for lateness as i stated above ,but was not warned cos warning was for lateness only.I rec'd the 1 verbal warning only was then sacked,i was only at the company for 3 months my problem now is that i signed on for jobseekers allowance and they have suspended benefit till mid december leaving me to live on hardship payment of 60% of the 112 fortnight jobseekers allowance.I live alone and rent from housing association so the 60 odd pounds i get a f/night is making it virtually impossible to get by.hhhheeeellllpppp,cheers in advance for any advice anyone might have,jason
