UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
well i have been back into work twice since my first comment once to see the cctv footage which shown nothing more than what was said and more than half of the screen was obscured by my back so the shot of me actually making contact was obscured, and the second time i went in to get another grilling about why i touch this arm instead of the other, how come your hand ended up there etc etc. should i be worried i have to go back in for the final meeting next week
well they have dissmissed me today for, as they describe it unreasonable behavior from a manager because i was so close to the female colleague i was invading her personal space. And therefore thats how the incident happened. im gobsmacked as the camera is behind me it is hard to tell how close i actually am to her and i was close so i could get back into my seat again and i have said that in my interview on a previous occasion. I have admitted from the beginning that i did accidentally catch her boob as i was going to tap her arm to say come on off you go. What do i need to do and is it at this stage i need to get a solicitor involved?
not yet apparently i can only submit the appeal when i get the letter with a summary of why they have dismissed me that will be within 7 days and then i have 7 days in which to appeal.
thanks jenny. however i do not believe the cctv goes against me. i can see in the cctv someone infront of the female colleague(who was sat down) had addressed me so i did lean over to hear the female colleague and with the camera on the ceiling 8ft up and 4ft away i believe the image may be somewhat distorted and to be honest there was never a single complaint from the colleague about me invading her personal space. Your thoughts are welcome
