Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
How long have you worked there for?
Since October 2010
OK, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX this with me - I will look into this for you, get my response ready and get back to you on here. No need to wait around and you will get an email when I have responded, thank you
It is now almost 6 hrs. since I contacted you, and I have NOT received any further response!!
Hi, thanks for your patience and apologies for the delay – we are not around much on weekends as we do not work from our offices.
Going back to your query, you have a couple of options:
You are most welcome
I think I will wait and see what happens, Thanks.
Buy how long should I be expected to wait ??
I am concerned because my post has already been filled.
you will not jeopardise your position by doing so - there are still numerous opportunities to deal with this along the way. How long you may have to wait will really depend on the investigation they are doing, the allegations, etc - I have seen people being suspended for more than a year in complex cases where a thorough and detailed investigation is needed, but in any event the employer should not keep you on suspension for longer than is reasonably necessary. So it depends on how much there is to investigate and the evidence that needs to be gathered, which would of course vary from case to case. You have the right to be kept updated periodically on the progress
I know that I remain an Employee of my Company, but surely someone must be overseeing things! I am part of a Massive organisation!
Yes of course, there should be a nominated investigating officer and you should have also been given a point of contact during your period of suspenson
I am not allowed to contact anyone related to the Company, and the Investigation has taken place.
The Investigating Officer met with me on Friday 14 March 2014
I believe strongly that she is involved in this delay-- for whatever reason.
I know my Company, Ben and now I believe that this process is really CORRUTP, hence the delay
I am also fully aware of this Companys' Policies, Procedures and Protocols, hense my opinion.
I also know that I was promised my 'Copies@ of all Documents
midweek last week, and these have not materialised
and they know that I am in limbo, and cannot move forward
I is common not to be allowed to contact anyone whilst on suspension apart from one dedicated person. The issue is I don't know the company and I can't comment on the employer's agenda or if they are trying to delay this or that they are running a corrupt process and all I can tell you is what you can do about it and ways of challenging it if necessary. Whilst you are in suspension and not facing a disciplinary, you are not fully entitled to all evidence or allegations and this only becomes a requirement if you were to face a formal disciplinary. Then the employer has a legal right to provide you with details of the allegations against you and any evidence so that you can properly defend yourself
Thank you. I just needed some re-assurance that's all - mainly because I'm probably feeling isolated. Thanks . At least now I don't feel so bad and that perhaps I am letting my imagination run really wild.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I will hang-on in there.
You are welcome - time will tell what happens here but remember you have rights and that you can challenge them where required. All the best
