Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Unfortunately with only 7 months employment with the employer, you have no action against them for unfair dismissal, as you require 2 years service.
However, it is possible that you may have a claim against the employer for wrongful dismissal. This will depend on the wording of your contract of employment with regards ***** ***** hearings and how they will take place. If the employer has failed to follow the correct process as per the contract then you may have a case against them for wrongful dismissal.
You need to take a good look at you employment contract. You should also discuss the matter with you union and they could advice on appealing the decision and also attend any hearings with you.
If they claim and have evidence of falsifying time some sheets and inspection records, then that is grounds for gross misconduct and Instant dismissal.
That is not disability discrimination.
As advised, you should contact your union and lodge an appeal against the dismissal. You can then see an a hearing exactly what evidence they have alleging what they claim you did.
Also to be remembered is that if the employer does have evidence for making there decision, they could if pressed pass that to the police to investigate as a criminal offence of fraud.
I cannot advice on the specific evidence they may or may not have.
I can however advice on the process to take as I have done so.
It is unlikely an employer would dismiss on such allegations with no evidence, knowing that a case may be taken to tribunal for wrongful dismissal.
Can I clarify further.
