Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being sworn at for mistakes: I was sent home from work for standing up for myself and have to have a disciplinary meeting with the boss, possibly ending in unfair dismissal. What are my rights on this?
Our head chef has sworn at me in the kitchen for a little mistake or a lack of communicated between the team. I have said to him, “I’m sorry for the mistake; however, don’t swear at me. You wouldn’t like it if I swear at you.” This happens at least once a week.
