Hi, thank you for your message. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Your workplace should be going through formal procedures in investigating the matter. If you attend any meetings with your workplace make sure you have a person attend with you such as an employee that you trust or a union member.
I would recommend that you do the following:
1) If you are not part of a union you should become a member so that they can assist you.
2) I would recommend you contact ACAS as they can offer free individual and collective conciliation services. Make sure you keep a record of relevant events: include dates and times and a description of what happened; plus copies of any relevant paperwork, eg letters, memos, emails, notes of meetings. It is always best to involve ACAS at the earliest stage. For more information on ACAS please visit the following link: http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=1697
3) Check that your employer are following the ACAS Code of Practice (http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=2174). The ACAS Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures gives practical guidance for handling these issues in the workplace. Make sure the procedure is being followed. If it isn't, you should point this out to your employer. It could mean that any decision they make is unfair.
4) Contact the ACAS helpline for further assistance. The ACAS Helpline can give advice on internal processes and policies to help you through this (0300(###) ###-####. Make sure you gather all relevant information before you call.
5) In any meeting with the police (if police gets involved) make sure to ask for a duty solicitor to be present. The duty solicitor can explain procedures and the law to you and attend all meetings with police with you.
