We had this gardener who was sacked for whatever reason 3 years ago. He was an expert at a particular job. That job now needed to be done. There was no one else that we could find to do that job. I remembered him but did not know how to approach. I hit upon an idea. I dialed his number and wanted to know whose number it was as I said I was in the process of cleaning my phone book. He blurted out his name. I told him who I was. He was in ecstasy. After a few pleasantries he is there now at our place, attending to that chore. We may reinstate him.

Well, if he got sacked not for dishonesty but a mistake, then he can certainly be reinstated again by you, because anyway, you said that he is an expert in a particular job.

Why was he sacked? It depends on you if you take him back. If he feels sorry for what he did then it's okay to take him back on the job.
