I am here. I am sorry for the delay. I was interrupted by an unexpected phone call. There is no time limit in terms of when you need to have this resolved but the employer must act reasonably at all times and does owe you a duty of care.You are also owed what is called "procedural fairness". That means that there must be a full and fair investigation which included your being told all the details of the allegations and your being given the right to answer to the allegations and essentially tell your side of the story. But there is no right to be involved at any one particular time.You also have the right for this investigation to be done in a timely manner and for the decision which must be made by unbiased decision makers to be delivered in a timely manner as well.
