It came as a big shock obviously and she’s very ashamed and upset as this places a lot of pressure on my dad. He is telling her to tell the new employer straight away that she has lost her job, but I advised talking to the union first. Does anyone have any input on the best thing for her to do? We all assume if she tells the new people they’ll definitely withdraw their offer...I suppose I want to know if there any any serious repercussions to her not telling them and then finding out later.
I’m very worried about this and it’s hard seeing her so upset and I think this whole thing has come as a shock to all of us. I can’t speak to many people about it as obviously she doesn’t want many people to know.
She seems to think that because she is 60 and was sacked, no one will ever take her on again (as I said, she had this job for 11 years and has never done anything like what she did before). She thinks she will be unemployed forever meaning they will have to downscale their house etc. Any advice welcome, but please no judgement on what she did. We all know it was bad.
