Hi. I am facing a disciplinary hearing at work this Thursday 18th April but i'm not quite sure what the offences are exactly to be honest. I already had one in Jan and was given a warning which i presume was my first one - I got an email about it saying next offence could be up to and dismissal and the warning stays on my file till July. I thought it was 3 warnings but I believe that was my first and Thursday would be my 2nd. I have been there since August last year but things are not nice there so I do want to leave. I really feel that i will be dismissed but can you give me any advise at all and can I resign/hand in my notice before the hearing? As i would rather resign then be sacked. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
Thanks. I just dont know where I stand on the warning stage? Like I say I had one in Jan and got a email back. So was that a written warning?
Not sure if I got verbal or not? but have only had one incident prior to this. My company is not the best with communicating with there staff!! So they cant refuse my notice? What do you think would be best for me to do...? Sorry for all the questions!
Thanks for your reply. I will leave feedback but can you ask another question or do you leave feedback at the end? I will find out about the allegations and where I stand on the warnings front and let you know...Is that OK?
Sure...Just letting you know, I just received this tonight FYI.
