Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long have you worked there for?
Thank you. The issue here is that you have very limited rights to either take this further or demand that the employer do anything. This is because you have less than 2 years’ service and that means you have no unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal protection. Therefore, the employer can dismiss you or force you to resign for more or less any reason and without following a fair procedure. So the fact that the procedures they followed have not been in accordance with their policies does not give you any rights as that would have only been challengeable under one of the two claims above, which as mentioned you cannot yet make.
You can nevertheless resign at any time still and try to negotiate with the employer for an early release where they consider allowing you to leave early and drop the investigation in return. You can remind them it is in the best interests of everyone as they then do not have to waste time and resources in dealing with this any further.
