Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. can you please tell me how long your brother has been employed at the post office.
Ok thank you leave it with me I need to look up a few things and then get my advice ready.I will post back on here when done there is no need to wait and you will receive an email when I have responded.
If the employer wanted to access an employee’s possessions in work, an for example go as far as removing them and destroying them if they are not removed by him beforehand, they are able to do so as long as they give him prior notice of their intentions and give him a deadline within which to remove them. If the deadline is missed and the items remain there, the employer could then remove them and dispose of them if necessary.
If they have kept any of the items then they should return them to him, they cannot just claim possession like this as they would still belong to him. So he is able to get the pool cue back if necessary but if he did not remove the other items by the given deadline and the employer has since removed them, there is unfortunately little he can do to claim these back or get any compensation for them, unless he can show that the notice was inadequate.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
you are welcome, all the best
