Leaving an employer in unfavourable circumstances and making Tredegar claims
If you’ve left a job under unfavourable circumstances in terms of personal reasons because of your employer, it can be difficult to get another job. Your employer may not give you a good reference. However, if you decided to leave following an accident and injury, for which you employer was to blame, you should not be discriminated against. People choosing to make Tredegar claims against their ex employers, should not experience any discrimination from new employers because they claimed compensation in their previous job.
Omission is not lying
If you don’t put these circumstances on your application then there is a good chance that any job you are applying for will never find out. This is not dishonest, merely glossing over the less than favourable circumstances. In any case – it’s your own personal business.
If you feel it’s appropriate, don’t list your previous job on your CV. If you only worked in your last job for a short time, then leave it out of your CV altogether and simply put the last job before that. As long as there isn’t too large a gap, your new employer shouldn’t ask questions.
If it becomes an issue at an interview, you must explain what has happened. Providing that you were not to blame for the accident, you should not be discriminated against. That would be quite improper and you may even be able to sue the company if it happened.
If you feel that the type of work you do is inherently dangerous (working at height for example) you might decide to change your career path. Before you do though, just bear in mind that it is an employer’s legal responsibility to look after the health and safety of their employees.
