Hi, 5 years employed as of 4th April this year, salary £54,932, employed as Sales Manager for retail, increased the area from £26m to £30m, and profit by £1.6m, called in last week with "New" sales director and HR manager and pretty much told they want be to go as the skill set does not meet what they want. Either I except a compromise agreement/settle of 3 months salary - taxed and £3563 settlement to go, if not they said I would go through disciplinary ? even though on the settlement offer it states that I have had no disciplinary ???
