UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hi Jenny, two and a half years
So I assume you have not been invited to a formal disciplinary hearing with the right to be accompanied?
No.. this seems to be a preemptive strike
If they were to dismiss you tomorrow it would amount to unfair dismissal and you would have the right to appeal and bring a claim in the employment tribunal and you would win on both substantive and procedural grounds.
I would actually do nothing and see if you do get dismissed, if you point the law out to them tomorrow they may just decide to follow the correct procedure.
Obviously it is up to you which way you play it. It may be that they will have an 'off record' discussion with you to say you can either leave or they will go down the procedure. This is ok and not unlawful. If they do you should ask for compensation for loss of earnings for the period of time you think it will be likely to be offered a new job.
If you have any further questions please ask. IF I have answered your quesiton satisfactorily I would be grateful if you would rate my answer. Thank you and all the bestr.
Thank you Jenny.. I was thinking if there was any opportunity to do anything tomorrow, however I take your point that I have to wait to see what they do.
