NG Bailey has not sacked any of the phone prank workers identified as a result of its investigation into jackass behaviour broadcasted on YouTube earlier this year, but has handed out ‘final written warnings’.
Morrisons supermarket cut its relationship with NG Bailey after the pranks came to light.
In a statement released to H&V News, NG Bailey said: “All those taking part in the five video incidents – including two of those responsible for filming – have been identified, and a thorough disciplinary process has followed.
“Nine of the 12 individuals identified – who took part in, or filmed the incidents – were employed by either the sub-contractor or employment agency, both of which NG Bailey has declined to name.
“Four had left their companies prior to the investigation, and two left during the disciplinary process after they had been advised that they were likely to be dismissed. The three others – none of whom took direct part in the pranks – received final written warnings.
“The other three people involved were employed directly by NG Bailey, and all took part in – or were involved in the filming of – one of the five incidents. One was made redundant prior to the investigation, and the two others – neither of whom had taken direct part in the acts – have been given final written warnings.”
