Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
nice to meet you, I have been working here since Oct 2007 .
It's a large corp, I am on this current role since Sept 2014 .
I didn't process completely / correctly a payment exposing the co. to fees. (a lot of fees)
resp is shared - as I am the lowest in the chain.
controls failed at all levels.
I mentioned that I wasn't 100% as the day before I had tooth extraction (had a registered sick day- everybody was aware) so the managem immediately tried to say I lacked due care.
thank you for your answer, this helps, but I need to be advised on how to conduct myself during the hearing.
specifically, if "pleading guilty" of being unfit for health reason can favour me or aggravate the situation.
My sick leave has been officially recorded before the drama, so this would shift part of the responsibility to check I was fit to do the job to my direct report. (I think) but I am unsure if I have to mention this.
grateful for an answer.
ps - I understand you are based in the US? I work for an American company n the UK, is the Uk law used in this case?
It does, many thanks for your patience.
