34-year old Tim had been at the bank for over a decade, but was suddenly hauled in front of a disciplinary committee last Wednesday and fired!
What was his crime and was NatWest right to fire poor Tim?
His crime? Gross misconduct.
Tim had apparently spent the last two years telling consumers how to get money back for unfair bank charges from NatWest and other banks, by giving advice and releasing internal documents.
As he tells the Independent: "It was good to get a sense that I was helping someone. I didn't agree
with our charging structure and there were a number of times when I
heard the charges were ruining lives."
Is NatWest right to fire poor Tim?
