Hi, I am afraid I was offline by the time you had replied and have only just come back on.
I presume that redeployment was something the employer could do under your contract whilst dealing with allegations against you and whilst they investigate these. It would be an alternative to suspending someone on full pay for the same reasons.
During this time the employer would usually be required to keep you updated on the situation and whilst they may not be expected to divulge details of what they have found, the least they could do is advise you that the investigation is still ongoing. However, to give you no information at all is rather unprofessional and can be a breach of trust and confidence on their part.
In the first instance you can take the matter further by making a formal complaint through the internal grievance procedure. The matter should be looked at officially and a formal process followed to investigate it. You can appeal the decision if you are unhappy with it.
After the grievance procedure has been exhausted then you are only really looking at resigning and claiming constructive dismissal. As you can imagine that is a rather risky decision so only go down that route if you believe that you can no longer continue working there as a result of this and because the employer has still failed to deal with the matter in a reasonable manner. However, it is the only option should your grievance fail and you are unable to get an amicable resolution in any other way.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
thanks i will make the complaint next week.
