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.
How long have you worked there for?
you will get a response, but it takes a few more minutes to type one out
The date of the incident does not make the suspension unlawful or open to challenge. This is a minor issue and if it is genuinely a typo, as long as the employer corrects it, there would be no issue with keeping the suspension in place. Obviously, if no correction was made and they are genuinely relying on an incident that did not happen, that would be something you can challenge in the future, should a disciplinary be commenced, but as far as the suspension is concerned, the employer does not even need to give details of the incident, they could easily suspend you with no details, pending further information.
Does this answer your query?
they certainly can, this is a non-event, it makes no difference to the suspension
They cannot do that and if they did you would be able to claim unfair dismissal – they need to go through a fair disciplinary procedure
The union are likely basing this on the nature of the allegations rather than because the employer has told them that. I cannot tell you whether to face the allegations and fight them or resign - I can only discuss the legal rights and options but the final decisions are up to you
at present it is just a rumour, it needs to officially happen for you to have any rights to challenge them
you need to be dismissed, that hasn't happened yet - only your union has told you they are thinking of doing it
but the union is not your employer - your employer has to officially confirm it
