  1. Sorry to be such a pain but obviously this is a huge worry for us. All the information that the Employer is relying on was available at the time of the suspension at the start of November but not mentioned until the middle of March. If the judge allows the allegations to be included (very persuasive solicitor v non-represented friend) will he require confirmation from the "owner of the goods" that they have been stolen?

As far as we know the customer has NOT said anything has been stolen. So friend in a letter to the tribunal requested that the employer should be required to have confirmation from the customer that these th
