My girl friend sacked from boots as an Assistant manager

Customer Question

My girl friend sacked from boots as an Assistant manager because she bought vitamins for a friend and used her discount card. She was with boots for 19 years and had a very good record

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today.

Is this something that Boots would normally sack people for ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Boots doesn't normally sack people for such offences, they have reinstated staff on bigger offences.
Expert:  Jenny McKenzie replied 1 year ago.

In that case she should appeal and claim unfair dismissal if she is not reinstated as it will amount to unfair dismissal if she is being treated more harshly for the same offence.

If there is anything further you would like to know about this please let me know. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
