Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What do you specifically want to know about this, please?
Thank you. Whether she is dismissed or not is entirely up to the employer. Whilst your friend can raise his concerns about the other person and complain to the employer about it but what happens next is up to the employer. They can investigate further and decide there is no further action to be taken, or they can decide that there is enough to justify disciplining her and even dismissing her. What your friend cannot do is tell the employer which way to take this, even if she is in the wrong.
If he has done all he can to raise the issues with the employer and they have not taken appropriate action, then it is a case of appealing first, before considering his next options. Unfortunately, the only other thing he can do after is to resign and consider a constructive dismissal claim against the employer, but he needs 2 years service to do that plus he will be giving up his job in the process. So it is really only an option if he cannot realistically continue there as a result of what has happened.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
