I have been there 3 years
I brought my car in to the factory to work on in my break(this is my crime), we have no rules to saying you cannot bring the car in and I have signed no paperwork and I have no knowledge of any rule that exist. Also a colleague of 20 years who had a signed statement taken from him of didn't know of any rules. my company is using cctv as evidence, we have no mandate or signs up or any warnings to visible or other wise. we have been told the cctv is there to watch the machines and nothing more CAN THEY USE IT AS EVIDANCE.
no it was in my break
I was working night shift and no management on site so I asked a colleague who has 20 years in the company if it would be ok, he seemed to think it was not a problem, so I did
no I haven't but I have a disciplinary tomorrow. I was verbally invited for an informal interview last week by my manager who is the one to make the complaint . He has carried out an investigation without my knowledge or inviting me to give a statement. He will also be the one giving the disciplinary tomorrow.
To make it clear: he has carried out every stage himself which I believe is unlawful and biased. The manager has always wanted me out of the company and this isn't the first time he has tried to get me dismissed.
