Has your employer said anything about this yet and was there actually some missing money?
Yes if they think you were stealing they should have told you by now or removed you from the risk.
Do you have any particular questions about this?
Hi the reason I asked for length of service is that if you have worked for less than 2 years you have less employment rights and can be dismissed for any reason.
Given that you have worked for longer than that your employer must treat you fairly.
They would need to have reasonable belief that you have committed an act of gross misconduct before dismissing you.
It is unlikely that they will be able to do so in the circumstances you describe given that a long period of time has elapsed and they have not carried out any investigation into the allegaiton.
If they do now try to take action you can raise a grievance about the delay.
If you were to be dismissed you could appeal and claim unfair dismissal.
If you have any further questions about this 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.
It may be that the word of 2 people would be enough for an employer to have reasonable belief
.The fact that there is no contract of employment does not mean that you do not have any employment rights.
The issue for you is the delay is unreasonable.
If you get a letter you should raise a grievance over the length of time it has taken for them to deal with the issue and state that you think that it amounts to a breach of trust and confidence.
Exactly, given the lack of immediate investigation they will struggle to establish reasonable belief, as I have already stated. If they were to dismiss you you could claim unfair dismissal.
There is always the possiblity that people will lie and there is nothing I can do about this. If you took it to tribunal they would have to lie on oath.
I have given you all of the legal information that is relevant in this sitaution. If you have any further questions I will be happy to answer them for you otherwise please remember to rate my answer as I will not otherwise be credited for my time.
