hello again, has he been told that he is going to face a formal disciplinary?
Not too sure. Has has an Investigation meeting tommorow, in which he is entitled to a witness of a colleague or union rep. After that I am not too sure what will happen currently.
Thanks for the reply. He had the investigation meeting today and was informed that the formal disciplinary hearing he need to attend is in 2 days. So I will have to see the outcome of that before figuring out what needs to be done.
Is there any reasonable grounds to ask to have the outcome/disciplinary meeting done by another manager? Since we, and many employees at the store believe the current manager "dislikes" or is biased against my partner. Due to this we believe his decision could be influenced by this.
