  5. I said don’t need hard copy, I will go to office and have face to face meeting. They didn’t say about bringing someone with me, only as email above. I will ask for policy’s if I get sent something, as I bet they have updated them after this situation.
  6. Just a update: I received a email today: Further to our meeting yesterday please find the invitation to a disciplinary meeting as discussed. It is likely the meeting on Thursday next week will be held online by Zoom or WhatsApp unless you would prefer this in the office. We currently have a procedure where only 4 people are in the office at any one time and this would need to be booked in advance. Please acknowledge receipt of the email and please advise if you would like a hardcopy of the letter. The manager explained that they would send a email with all the details, and why I was getting a disciplinary for? I just hope as I not had this, maybe a written warning? Hence : “ would like a hardcopy of the letter” what do you think?
  7. we work for southwestern railway, repairing their stations. we have a big folder with everything in to each station we work on. on the COVID section, it has not been read out on a toolbox talk, and I don’t know if and when it has been updated. Our health and safety, gives it to the Forman to pass onto us. the last one we had was maybe 4th of jan 2021. we heard our health and safety was coming to job, and me and my colleague just filled in blanks with no foreman present. so am sure I have signed this years without anyone explaining. I did tell the manager that today, the office might get emails, but don’t pass it onto us and explain things. They know this happens on site. I will ask for: copy of employers covid testing policy, covid-safe ways of working for your job conduct/ disciplinary policy. But worried they might of changed things. Thankyou Emmzzi so much with helping me.
  8. Thankyou so much Emmzzi, I didn’t really ask for it, but I did think that what you said and agree that got time to change it. Then I hope it would be a verbal warning or a written warning. I am just worried as the company had to get there lawyer involved, and I guess there the ones who are asking for certain questions to piece together. Then they might advise what action the company should take? Also, is possible to be sacked and bypass a verbal and written warning?
  9. Had a chat with manager. wanted to know when my girlfriend received her test which was Friday 8th jan when I was at work with my colleague. so i isolated with her when I got back. Then I received mine in the Saturday 9th. I did ask about employers covid testing policy, and said it was all rushed, and didn’t go through it correctly. boss said there is a section, if take test you must stay at home. To be honest, wasn’t explained correctly and section were added it bit by bit. I did asked about disciplinary procedure. was it : 1 verbal mans two written warnings ? He said yes. I have no verbal or any written warnings and been with them 3 years I think. Then next stage is a typed up summary of I guess what’s happened, then the disciplinary. I also asked about work colleague, he was not really eating his food, but getting better, also his parents have no symptoms. So I don’t know where I stand at the moment.
