Dear Sir,

In 2004, I worked for a Large Telecomms Company as a Casual. During one of my conversations with the Dealer,(This was a personal issue) I imitated a client. As there was no other way for me obtaining any information about the clients phone. I was then called in for a Dis. Hearing and Subsequesntly fired.

Then in 2005, I was employed by another company, and at the Time of the Interview I did not tell the company that I was dissmissed. Any how I got the job.

My big shock came, when the person that got mefired me from the Company, joined the THE NEW COMPANY THAT EMPLOYED ME. Somehow or the other, After a month I was called in and told that I am suspended du eto me falsifying my CV. I was taken aback as the Emplyment agency confirmed all my information.

After I did some of my own investigations, It surfaced that the Gentleman that GOT ME FIRED apparently had all my information on his Laptop. He apparently told my employer everything. He even went to the extent at giving them information of my personal life. Again I was calle din for a hearing and subsequently fired.

Does that employee have a right to do what he did.

The question that you may ask? What proof do I have that he did this. Well he played the conversations of what he found at Company 1 and also, questions were posed to me at the hearing, that he only knew, that had taken place at Comapny 1.

Is there any case here?

Thanks for ur help

Firstly you must remember that you need to complain about a dismissal within 30 days after having been dismissed. It appears that you are long out of time. All dismissals are tested against 2 issues, i.e. the procedure used and the reason for the dismissal. It looks like the procedure was not in order and would have been unfair is properly challenged at the CCMA.
