Thank you very much for your answer. - only have one further question. How does one determine if you have a contractual disciplinary policy. Thanks
Hello I have appealed against my dismissal based on that none of the Disciplinary Policy and Procedure was followed. Should I also be raising a grievance, under the grievance policy as well?
Hi Thanks for the reply.
I have has a letter back from my appeal stating that there will be an investigation and my appeal will be heard by the chair of the board. In your view surely the appeal will be upheld because there was no disciplinary process followed at all. If that is the case what do you think will happen, do you think that I would be reinstated put on gardeners leave and then they will go through a disciplinary procedure? ie the appeal hearing is based breach of contract or what they want to discipline me for? To further complicate matters I have stated in my appeal regarding some other points that the ceo had done which was in proper and perhaps he realy dismissed me because I was going to report him ie "whistleblow" (they were to do with tax and accounting issues.)Your view would be appreciated.
Hi today I may have secured a job and they want a ref from this employer. Given the appeal and breach of contract could I offer a compromise agreement in return for a reference and resign if I am still not considered dismissed?
If I contact them by letter it should be on a without prejudice basis? Thanks
As a follow on I have received a letter today offering me a settlement agreement:
ex gratia payment of £2,000.00
4 weeks notice
£300 towards legal costs
what do you think?
