I stand corrected. 

Still never heard it myself and I grew up with loads of elderly relatives both sides who spoke the doric 

 

I studied Doric for a bit as part of a language course a few years back. Im quite interested in local dialects around Britain . 

Im a bit of a geek.

Sure there used to be a Brewdog thread, the search function is pish now. 

Quote

Former staff at Brewdog have alleged a "culture of fear" at the beer firm with a "toxic attitude" to junior employees.

In an open letter, signatories said a "significant number" of former staff had "suffered mental illness as a result of working at BrewDog".

They claimed that the firm was built around a "cult of personality" of founders James Watt and Martin Dickie.

Mr Watt said Brewdog was "sorry" and that it would not contest the letter, but "listen, learn and act".

The Scottish brewer is credited with helping make craft beer mainstream, after major supermarkets started stocking it in 2008. But it has also courted controversy for its marketing and commercial decisions.

In the open letter, which was posted anonymously on Twitter, former staff made a number of allegations, including a culture where staff were afraid to speak out about concerns.

It said Mr Watt and Mr Dickie had exploited publicity, "both good and bad" to further their own business goals and chased "growth, at all costs".


It added: "You spent years claiming you wanted to be the best employer in the world, presumably to help you to recruit top talent, but ask former staff what they think of those claims, and you'll most likely be laughed at.

"Being treated like a human being was sadly not always a given for those working at BrewDog."

According to the letter, toxic attitudes towards junior staff had "trickled down" throughout the business "until they were simply an intrinsic part of the company".

"Put bluntly, the single biggest shared experience of former staff is a residual feeling of fear. Fear to speak out about the atmosphere we were immersed in, and fear of repercussions even after we have left," it added.

Along with many breweries and other parts of the hospitality industry, it has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr Watt said: "At Brewdog we are focussed on building the best business we can, which is why the open letter we saw on Twitter was so upsetting, but so important.

"Our focus now is not on contradicting or contesting the details of that letter, but to listen, learn and act."

Nice to see an ex-employee get one over his former employer😄.

Spoken by someone who has probably never had to employ someone before!

It's got fuck all to do with "getting one over your employer" and more about being a selfish lazy cunt who doesn't give a fuck about their workmates who have to pick up the slack.

For every genuine case of something like this happening and someone getting sacked for it unfairly there will be hundreds more of them being lazy cunts who are playing the system and their employers have probably exhausted every avenue in order to get rid of their workshy arse.

Previously worked with someone who was constantly off sick but who amazingly returned to work just as their sick pay entitlement was due to be used up. They somehow got a doctors line no questions and yet their social media was filled with them out and about every weekend.

Ended up in a disciplinary and they started the whole "invasion of privacy" for the company looking at their social media conveniently ignoring the facts at hand. Got sacked, went to a tribunal and lost but will still tell anyone who cares to listen how they were shafted by their company.

"Miserable. Thanks for asking though." and "I woke up this morning so I'm happy" is a couple of responses used to said enquiry.

It's a very fair point you raise min.

I have never employed anyone before, however I can only go by what has been reported in the article to make a opinion. If the employer, which has been legally decided, had not carried out a robust and diligent process on whether or not the employee was in breach of contract, i.e  on the charge of gross misconduct, incapability, or any other substantial reason that contravenes his contract of employment, then, yes he should not have been dismissed. 

However, I fully agree with you that a number of people take the piss by signing themselves off for whatever reason, and, consequently, others have to pick up the slack. These people are protected species it seems though.

Anything on social media is generally in the public domain so they can forget that bollocks. I've known guys like that myself . Cunts who won't do a job because of some obscure hazard. They are the most frustrating of cunts when you just want to get on with shit.
