Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
I am in a senior position and have fallen out of favour, reason unknown to me.
I resigned on 14 May as my position became untenable and have been signed off sick my doctor throughout my 8 weeks notice thus far with work related stress. Notice period ends 13 August. completing 12 weeks
During this time I subsequently won an appeal on end of year rating with 25k bonus attached for 2014. I also have a LTIP worth 55k.
Prior to my resignation I had started exit conversations with the Firm on the basis that I no longer wanted to work in a company where I was not valued following an initial appt with a local lawyer
Within 48 hrs there was an investigation into breach of values and behaviour and the report has resulted in a proposed hearing to determine if discp ( gross misconduct) is found. Due to be held 27 July.
I think the firm is taking this action with a pre-determined outcome. To dismiss me, not pay bonus for 2014 and make void my LTIP.
What I really want to know is if I ask to terminate on grounds of ill heatlh with immediate effect, knowing that will be giving up sick pay until 13 August. What actions can the firm take against me please?
