Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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.
Has this person raised a formal grievance against you and if so, is your employer investigating the complaint?
OK no problem re the phone call and thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Can I please check if the complaint was made at the workplace where you are sent by the agency or to the agency itself?
Ok thanks, as you are an agency worker, your rights will be rather limited and you do not have the right to be taken through any specific or formal disciplinary procedure. It would very much be down to the employer to decide how to take this further and whether to take it any further at all. So if someone has made a complaint against you there is no automatic right to find out what the complaint is or who made it. You may do if the employer decides to take it further but that is up to them, including how long it takes for it to happen. Also as you have no right to get a fair disciplinary process, they could easily just terminate your placement there and not ask you to come back – that is one of the pitfalls of being an agency worker – you are very easily replaced.

All the best
