Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Did we not cover this earlier or do you need further advice and if so, what specifically please?
What is the purpose of the meeting?
please remind me if it was due to a complaint your husband raised?
Oh yes thank you. If he is signed off sick he should request that the meeting is postponed until a later date when he is either signed fit for work again, or he simply feels better to deal with it. In the meantime advise them that they must respect that he is signed off sick and that they should not be harassing him with constant messages
they can do but that also includes an investigation and this could be an investigatory meeting which could lead to disciplinary in the future
no they should not proceed with it to ensure it is all done fair, but if he is not going to return or is leaving they can do so.
ok so it does not really matter at this stage if he is leaving anyway
no it wouldn't, especially as the resignation will happen around the same time
sorry can't be very detailed at this time as I am going offline now as up very early tomorrow...but I thought that you had decided he will resign and claim constructive dismissal?
well that is the million dollar question...the thing is I cannot tell you do this or do that - I can tell you the legal position, rights and options but which way you take it is up to you. I could easily give you the wrong option n here, simply based on the limited informaiotn I have, hence why I cannot make such decisions
all the best
