Andrej’s appeal hearing only lasted 40 minutes. His representative presented evidence proving that Andrej was dismissed unfairly. Part of this evidence are two statements from Andrej’s colleagues claiming that he was sacked based on malicious grievance that was raised by a manager who was instructing staff to break Pret’s food safety standards.
At the end of the hearing, Andrej was asked why he thinks he was sacked. He responded:
“I was victimized for Whistle-blowing and establishing the Pret A Manger Staff Union.”
The outcome of the appeal should be released on 7th December 2012.
