Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. Is any formal action being taken against you?
Thank you. There is no formal right to find out who had made such allegations against you as the employer will have a duty to keep such information confidential unless the complainants agree to have their identities revealed. This is especially true if no formal action is being taken against you. Had a formal disciplinary been taken out against you, then the employer would have had to provide you with sufficient evidence to be able to defend yourself and whilst they would still not be obliged to disclose the identities, you may have guessed them from the evidence provided. But at this stage there is not much you can do to get them to reveal these.
If you wanted to complain about these allegations being untrue and malicious, you can still raise a grievance if needed. You do not need to know the identities to be able to do that because the employer would know them so if they had a complaint with you they would still know who they need to deal with following your grievance. So do not let that stop you from raising a grievance against these people if you wanted to.
