Currently on a suspension from work and waiting on a disciplinary hearing. Having seen the statements from my Manager and her assisitant they have both lied on this.

    Good afternoon.  

    Your employer needs to carry out a sufficient investigation into your alleged misconduct.  Ordinarily, this would mean that you should firstly attend an investigation meeting.  

    At either, or both, of the investigation and disciplinary hearing/s you should clearly state your version of events and explain why the statements are untrue.  If you can, you should also provide any evidence which disputes what has been said by them.  This could include any emails, documents or other witnesses. 

    Once your employer has properly considered everything, they should then make a reasonable and justifiable decision.  Feel free to contact me on 01744 744413 should you need any further assistance. 

    All the best.   Paul
