A global company has come under fire for its impersonal and unorthodox method of terminating an employee’s contract.

    Absolutely!! and it shouldnt need an explanation as to why. Kellogg's should be ashamed of themselves. This complete lack of empathy for a valuable employee must stand as a warning to how much value the organisation will place on the health of its customers. I choose to financially boycott Kelloggs from now on.

    My name is Scott McAtamney I am the person involved in this story . I just want to clarify a couple of things mentioned in this column . Not at any stage did I advise Kellogg's that I did not wish to talk to them further and not once did they call me or try to call me as they state after our last phone link up . I they want to prove me wrong they can easily obtain phone records to do this and surely they would have left a phone message If they want to say that they hung up before it went to message bank and didn't register as a call. They also have my company phone which was returned to check records. To say that sending an email to sack me was as a last resort is a further insult .
