Ben I have resigned from my post after sending a letter to

Resolved Question:

Hi Ben I have resigned from my post after sending a letter to all concerned stating that I was dishonest and utterly regret my actions. The counter fraud manager says I still have to attend the investigation meeting to conclude the process. What will happen after the meeting I would have left the trust by then. I have worked for the trust for 24 years without a blemish on my record, I am 59 years old.Kind regardsKim

Hi there is not much they can do after your employment has ended. It is not like they can take disciplinary action against you or dismiss you as you will have left by then. Whilst criminal action is an option this is not really relevant here because as mentioned there is no fraud here and nothing unlawful from a criminal perspective. So the only thing that they may do that could affect you is mention this matter in a reference in the event you were going to use them as a referee in the future. You do not have to though so this is only a risk if they were going to supply a reference for you. Even then there is no guarantee that they will include such information so it is not automatically going to become an issue.

I hope this has answered your query.
