Hello are you still officially supposed to be working for them or has your employment now ended? If not how long do young have left?
If your notice period has ended and you agreed to stay on without agreeing on a specific period to do this for, you could technically leave at any time. Being suspended is not an indication of guilt and it is just used as a precautionary measure whilst the employer conducts an investigation into the allegations. If you leave now and they want to hold a disciplinary in the near future then you do not have to attend this. If they find you guilty in your absence they cannot dismiss you as your employment had already terminated. However they could potentially say in a reference that you had left whilst suspended or whilst facing a disciplinary hearing. It is not the same as being found guilty but people may build an inference from this and assume you have done something wrong. However if you are not going to rely on a reference from them this should not really pose a problem for you.

Hello please note that the employment and criminal pasts to your query are entirely separate and you need different lawyers to advise on each. So I can continue advising on the employment part but as mentioned you have to ask a separate question for the criminal side. Is that ok?
