Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I am happy to help with your enquiry today.
Yes, you can be dismissed for gross misconduct as long as your employer follows the correct procedure. However, they cannot dismiss you for that reason if there is no evidence to prove that you have committed gross misconduct in the workplace. If they do so, then you are entitled to make a claim for unfair dismissal.
In that case, no, you will not lose your job as long as you can provide evidence that you did not commit the alleged statement of said negligence by your colleague.
