Being accused of misconduct at work can be a very stressful and unpleasant experience. The situation is made worse if you feel that the investigation or the outcome is unfair, or that allegations against you have been made maliciously. Your employer should have a proper policy, allowing you to respond to the allegations and give your side of the story. There should also be an appeal process if you disagree with the findings. In practice, and particularly in cases of gross misconduct or where an investigation would be time-consuming, the decision may be made before you have a chance to respond. Your employer may often short-cut the formal process in an attempt to force you to leave quickly.
At Backhouse Solicitors we are experts in employment law and misconduct cases. We offer a free 30 minute interview to hear your side of the story and to help you understand if you have been treated properly.
