I was dismissed from my employment on the 29th of April I feel that I was scapegoated in terms of the offensive I committed however, I stated of several occasions the level of strain and stress the work load I was under was taking on myself both physically and mentally. I went from a some what model employee to being dismissed within five months. I feel that it should have been a case of diminished accountability due to numerous factors sheer exhaustion work related stress lack of consistent breaks breaching the working time directive on several occasions and finally the break down of my home life meaning the break down of long term relationship and the lack of contact with my children. I feel that all of these factors exacerbated my condition to levels not seen since I was very young putting me in a very vulnerable situation. I am requesting assistance in terms of information I can provide to my previous employer as I am appealing the dismissal.
