So, my question now then is how many people HAVE been fired for gross misconduct?

I'm sure there may well have been one or two but in most cases, is it not the possibility of losing (in Mach's case) 74.999999%, the reason why they 'offer' you the option to resign instead?

So Harry, the fact is 72%, in my case.
Nothing more, nothing less.
However the 72% will increase towards 74.999999999999 % over time.
And that’s a FACT.

So people, regardless of how Harry likes to portray the issue.
If you are dismissed for Gross Misconduct, they can decide to keep up to 74.9999999% of the sum of the A and B contributions.
Just saying.
I was told specifically by MG in Mondial who was involved in case that an American did a runner for personal reasons - Co. wanted to deduct the various costs of early exit from A fund, he retained London solicitors with offices in U.K., Isle of Man & Dubai and after two weeks of back and forth between lawyers - all Prov monies released to exiting pilot. I forgot to ask for how long he was here.

Faced with losing any or all of my Prov - it will be worth a fight.

I think the intricacies of whether it’s a firing or a forced resignation detracts from the issue that in almost all cases, the poor employee should neither have been fired, or forced to resign. It’s still losing your job, relocating your family and suffering the stress of being blamed for something that may have its origins in the ethos of the organisation, rather than the ability of the individual.

It’s a sad state of affairs, but one that likely is there to stay.

O R,

"So, my question now then is how many people HAVE been fired for gross misconduct? "

I was answering the question!

Yes, I know - wasn’t a dig at you, just felt the thread seemed to drifting into an flippant examination of English comprehension rather than the important issue at hand - colleagues’ lives being ruined by horrible, unaccountable, corrupt individuals. Back on topic...

Looks like the CM1 asking the CM2 if he needs to go potty when the 20min to TOPD call is made will be made compulsory by FCI soon. We may have “THE” ASR of 2018 already.

At this point at Emirates being let go would be a blessing. Everyone I know that has left has ended up at a better position and hell, it would be hard to go to a worse position than we are in currently.
So Odnis being sacked would actually help your career, not hinder it. I am not necessarily recommending it but it wouldn’t be the end of the world either.

Ha ha ,classic!! The best ASR ever, I'd argue. Bet he went home all chuffed and explained to his wife how he'd schooled this young fellow, and she'd respond "that's great dear, when you flying next?" Knob!!!
