Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today.
It is up to you whether you chose to resign or to go ahead with the meeting. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of attending the hearing then you could resign. You have said you feel you will be dismissed anyway but you do not know for sure unless you do attend the meeting.
If you are considering the effect on your reference then it may not assist you to resign as the employer can state in a reference that you resigned pending a gross misconduct disciplinary hearing.
The other negative effect on resigning could be on your ability to claim job seeker benefits as you normally need to show that you have not decided to leave your job.
If you have any further questions please do ask.If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.

but in case of a dismissal, that will also adversely effect my employability in the future.
Solicitor: Jenny McKenzie,
 replied 3 years ago
Of course it will, I was just pointing out that resigning may not solve your problem regarding a reference so any decision you make should be in the knowlege of that fact.
If there are any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
