Okay, I went with option 2.

I expressed my concerns. I made no accusations. I made it clear that given my responsibilities, I felt that I needed to be brought up to speed with the records I was concerned about before I felt confident performing my required duties.

Following further discussions throughout the day, I met with my Director and was handed notice of immediate dismissal (in my opinion this is perfectly proper, since I had not yet been employed for one month and was effectively still on probation).

I was actually in the process of drafting my resignation at the time. I would have got in first but I didn't have a printer :)

If the response to my concerns had been to provide me with the records I requested (for my own peace of mind) or to explain that there were good reasons for their non-existence (such as the points made in the previous post about contract requirements) then I would have been satisfied and apologised for pressing people so hard for the info.

However, this is not what happened and so essentially my boss and I reached a point where we wouldn't be able to reconcile our different approaches to the business.

I'm not going to express any personal opinion about the company, or this turn of events. I still do not know whether the matter I voiced concern over is in fact fine, since I did not find out enough information regarding it before I was released. There really was no ill-feeling involved in the release - we both agreed to disagree and parted company.

On the up-side, I've always had a reserve offer hanging with the Home Office for the whole time I have been working at the other company. So don't worry, cos today's events have simply solved the second dilemma I had about whether or not to switch jobs :)

Well done! Shame that you didn't seem to have made an impact on whatever was going on, if it wasn't above board, but at least your integrity remains intact. And it's good to know that you have another option lined up :)
*nods* ok, sounds like you've done the right thing then. And also like they are complete gits!!!

Phew, I'm glad. That sounded like a potential bad bad situation. Yay integrity!
