Was the grievance about things said by the employee being disciplined?
what exactly was the note taker's role?
Yes. Purely to take notes of the disciplinary hearing. She has raised a grievance that the employee,s comments were sexually discriminate.
The disciplinary offence was that he took part in a knecknomination whilst being medically signed off as unit for work having had an operation. He received a final written warning as a result of the disciplinary hearing. However, at the meeting he made the comment that if it had been an office full of men instead of women the reaction would have been different to the offence. The female note taker took exception to this and raised a grievance that he was being sexually discriminate. On the employee,s first day back to work he was immediately suspended again pending the outcome of this employee,s grievance.
Can you advise what is happening please?
