HOW CAN I CAUSE A BUS DRIVER TO BE SACKED? Topic: How to write a report on events
July 18, 2019 / By Salina
Question: Hi, well i live in canberra, and im a student and i catch the ACTION buses. I catch a public bus that takes me to my school, so it is NOT a school bus, so i can't call the school or a child protection agency. So, what happens with this bus driver is this: 1. i am 15 metres away from the bus stop when he stops the bus. There are two people getting on 2. i bolt down to the stop and make it in time before he drives off and the bus is still stationary and is so for about 5 seconds before it drives away, but just as i am literally right in front of the bus he looks at me and shuts the door. 3. He just looks at me and shakes his head and drives off. You must remember that he is watching me as i run to get to the stop and that the time between the 2nd person to get on the bus and the time it would take me to get on the bus is like 1~2 seconds. Also you must know that this is the 4th time that this has happened to me. Also he stops for other people when they have to run to the bus stop, and he waits for them at least 5 seconds. The policies on the website say that if you are late to the bus stop, the bus driver may not see you and you may have to catch the next one. But as i have clearly stated the bus driver looks at me and shakes his head. so this policy does not apply. So what are some actions i can take to get this bus driver sacked? I could sue him for racism as i am of asian background and the girls that he waited for carcasian The things that i was thinking was to get a photo of his bus driver liscence ( to find out his name and other details) and to film him pass me for the 5th time (as i act as if i am again only seconds away from the bus) and film him stop for other people when they are running to the stop. Then i write a formal complaint (with the recordings attached as a fille) to ACTION. What other places could i write to if ACTION does not reply or take action? And please do take this seriously, i have forgiven his 3 times but this time it was too far, because he just sat on the bus and looked at me then drove away. Also i do not have any wittnesses as i have asked the people that catch my bus to see if they have seen these events happen but none are saying that they have seen it. Thanks Jordan, i asked how to sue this guy not what i could do to avoid situations like this.

I saw that happen to a girl yesterday. I was on the bus and I saw her running to reach the stop before the bus did. The bus driver laughed, speeded up, and gave her the finger as she passed by. I didn't ask her name but I later reported her to the bus company specifying the location and time of day. They have records of who is driving that route at that time. Maybe you could do that.

Nicola Originally Answered: Does a p45 mean your sacked? (UK)?
P45 You get a form P45 from your employer when you stop working for them. It's a record of your pay and the tax that's been deducted from it so far in the tax year. It shows: your tax code and Pay As You Earn (PAYE) reference number your National Insurance number your leaving date your earnings in the tax year how much tax was deducted from your earnings A P45 has four parts - Part 1, Part 1A, Part 2 and Part 3. Your employer sends Part 1 to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and gives you the other three. When you start a new job, or claim Jobseeker's Allowance, you give Part 2 and Part 3 to your new employer or to the Jobcentre. You keep the remaining one (Part 1A) for your own records. Your employer should automatically give you a P45 when you stop working for them. If not, ask for it - you're entitled to it by law.

As I understand it, P45s should only be issued to people when they leave a company and the employment ends- which maternity leave doesn't count as. I've just asked a woman in this office who had maternity leave last year, and she wasn't given a P45 when it happened. Those 3 weeks might be a problem though. Do you have a doctor's note or other medical proof that you were legitimately signed off with genuine work-related stress, or did you just bunk off? If you just bunked off and they sent you a P45 then you may have been fired. However if you were fired you should have had a letter giving you your notice and informing you clearly of that fact. You need to ask your employer, what is your current work status? Are they expecting you back and if so, on what date? Have you continued to be paid so far?

Harry, What does her employment contract say? Depending on what it says, yes, they could fire her. Now, if she has been a good employee for over 20 years and there are few to no incidents of this in the past, most bosses will tolerate someone having a bad day (as long as she did not go overboard). As far as the money, again, back to the contract. Although, unless she was a high-level executive, most employee contracts don't have much in terms of early termination but there are severance packages. In some cases these also include health insurance for a short period. By the way, it is a good idea that everyone understand what their benefits are in case they are ever fired. In terms of her future employability, if she did get fired, then that company is probably not the best suitor to get a reference from because they would make reference to this incident, which, in the customer service world is a cardinal sin. I wish your mom good luck and that she find a way to deal with stress more constructively so she doesn't see herself in a difficult position.

They can absolutely fire her over this, I would. We all have stress and deal with difficult people, I bet this is her entire office. It doesn't give her the right to snap at a customer...ever...period. This is her job, she can snap all she wants at home. It wont make her unemployable at all and honestly, if she has been there for long enough, they likely wont fire her. That being said, if that customer complains to the state department of insurance over their treatment, she should expect to be fired immediately. My question to you, is this the only time its ever happened, or the only time she has told you about it?

all of the above might depend on the company she works for, might depend on the customer filing a complaint if she is looking for other jobs, any reference she might get should be based on her total time, 20 yrs, rather than what has recently happened
