First of all – breathe! Nothing is eaten as hot as it is cooked… I know that you think the situation is bad, but it might not be that bad. Your SO can prepare himself for this talk and explain himself … (( hugs )) Sorry, I am so short but on the phone, will reply later in detail.

@dannielle89:  How big is the team? If the score was low then everyone must have given management a bad review. Plus I’m pretty sure that using an anonymous survey to fire someone could be considered wrongful termination. Did the manager who yelled at your Darling Husband put it in writing (email)? If so, make sure he keeps a copy.

Well, assuming he’s not on a probation period at his work then he’d need 3 written warnings to be fired.

If he was respectful in his email, they’d have no reason to fire him either.

One of the great things about Australia is that you usually can’t be fired for no reason and you need 3 written warnings. Otherwise you can get unfair dismissal.

I really don’t think you’ve got anything to worry about.

@Lovemelovemyhorses:  this. 

 

OP do you still live in Sydney? Is he in probation? You can’t just fire someone here in Oz.

@dannielle89:  I’m also an aussie in finance, you cannot just fire someone because of these results. He will have a good case against them if they tried. I actually suffer from foot in mouth disease and I have survived 32 years in the industry.

Another Aussie here to chime in with some reassurance that unless it’s gross misconduct, he’s going to need 3 warnings before he can get the sack. Good luck, though!

I worked in Finance. There’s a lot of large egos in that industry. If he keeps his head down for a while it’ll blow over.

@dannielle89:  Just breathe. Like the other bees have said, they are unable to simple firE him. If you turn out to be correct & he gets moved to another department then deal with it when it happens. Unfortunately it is out of your control now, so try to relax Sunday night so that you are ready to combat the week ahead. And keep us updated!
