Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am currently a site supervisor for cleaners at work. I work alsongside a site manager, his sister is a site secretory on another site. There has been problems in work, last week he was shouting at me so I called my boss to tell him what was going on. Since then the site manager has put a grievance in about me. previous to this in August there was another argument and the site manager bought his sister in to takes minutes. I have recently read the minutes and none of which is true. His sister is also apart of this investigation and I feel this is unfair on my behalf as the full truth will not be told.

I need some advice what to say at meeting because I find it unusual that a site manager has put in a grievence against me I have never had a warning off him or a disciplinary
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.

It is not common to have to bring in a letter to an investigatory meeting so there is no point in having one drafted. An investigatory meeting is really something which is done verbally where you are asked questions about what has happened and there is a discussion between you and the investigating officer. If the employer has someone to take minutes and in the past these have not matched what has been said, you are free to take your own notes and if you disagree with what the employers version of events is then you can correct them and provide your own.

As far as the forthcoming meeting is concerned it could be difficult to prepare if you do not know exactly what the investigated issues would be. Often it is not possible to prepare for an investigatory because you have little details of what you have been accused of and things only become apparent once you start discussing them with the employer. Also remember that this is only an investigatory – you are not presumed guilty, it is just an opportunity to find out what has happened and decide if there is evidence to take it further. If there is then there will be a formal disciplinary and then you will get full details beforehand and have the opportunity to prepare and defend yourself. But this is just a fact-finding exercise so it is not really possible to tell you how to prepare – all you have to do is explain what has happened and answer any questions put to you about it – it is about telling the truth about how you perceived the events and just outing your side of the story forward. There is no secret to it or anything special that you have to do, that is all that is expected of you and the best you can do in the circumstances. You get more rights if it goes to disciplinary and can look at it in more detail there, for this meeting as mentioned you just have to turn up and answer questions and put your version of events forward.
