Background............... I was given a written warning and have 5 days to appeal, please help... I admitted to throwing some clients personal data into a domestic bin along with my personal credit cards details. The data was discovered by a neighbour who immediately contacted my company. On the day, I had a severe hypo after exercise and from 8pm to 2am I could not remember what I did but vaguely recall throwing items away; but only after the questions were put to me. I recently moved home and prior to the incident i was sorting my house and tidying papers so it was like I was programmed to carry on. Several months before I spoke to the diabetic clinic and they advised me to have less insulin which i did but its difficult to regular after intense exercise. The above was exceptional and I have been proactive and introduced measures so it does not happen again eg not taking data home and better heath control. My conduct previous to this had been perfect and my employees have a high regard on my performance and behaviour. My employers was aware of my condition. I regret the incident but was not aware i had disposed the documents. OUTCOME......CAN YOU HELP? Last week they advised me that the written warning still stands because I should have been managing my diabetes better. If I had then the incident would not have happened. They had not consulted with my GP or Consultant who look after my diabetes. They had referred me to OccHealth who said that I need better management and agree that the incident with me disposing the items is feasible. I think I may go to the employment tribunal because the warning stays active on my file for 12 months, but it stays on file for ever.
