Hello how long have you worked there for?
Thank you. Being placed under investigation is not an automatic assumption of guilt and does not amount to disciplinary action. It allows the employer to conduct a reasonable investigation into the allegations against the employee. If the investigation gathers enough evidence to justify the taking disciplinary action that could be the next step. In that case the employee has the right to be informed in advance of the allegations against them and be given the opportunity to prepare for the hearing to defend themselves.
On the other hand, if the investigation does not find enough evidence to justify a disciplinary, the employer should allow the employee to return to work as normal.
In your case you have done something wrong, regardless of the reasons. You were not in work on time and even if this was due to not feeling well, you should have still informed the employer about it. They can treat this as a disciplinary matt if needed but that will be a decision they make after the investigation. So for the time being all you can do is assist them with this investigation, answer any questions they have and explain why you did what you did. If they decide to take it further then you will have the opportunity to defend yourself as necessary.

Deposit for what please?
Are you not satisfied with the service?
just to clarify this is not a free service. You pay a deposit but you do not get it back if you are satisfied, you only get it back if you are not satisfied so that is why I was asking if you were not satisfied?
You can request a refund on the site, I cannot issue them
