I am writing this on behalf of someone else. Where i use the words me i or us means the person involved. Not me.
I was employed as a mobile with a well known security company.
My main job was to respond to alarms and deal with them.
When i started my job off i was told that i was on a gauranteed 24 hour contract (weekly).
I was not given any paperwork apart from some paperwork to show how and what i should be doing.
I was told be my manager that i would recieve my contract in the post during the next 4-6 weeks.
I also emailed my manager and he confirmed that i had indeed signed upto a 24 hr gauranteed contract that gauranteed me work of at least 24 hours a week.
This manager left and work was going on well until october when my vetting was complete and i was sent a 0 hours contract by Human resources.
I immediately phoned up and was told to query this with my manager.
2 emails were sent and nothing happened.
Again in january this year my manager changed and i raised this again with hr.
The new manager said he would investigate this.
He came back to me and told me that the email i had was worthless and that i was on a 0 hours contract.
Worst bit my days have been cut where i was without any income for 6 weeks.
Since august last year i have put in several uniform requests and have had 0 back as manager keeps on claiming he has lost paperwork.
This is despite sending 2 emails to him.
I now come to the part After having nearly 6 weeks without work i started back a few weeks ago.
The first night back i was pulled by traffic police and asked why i was watching a video playing while driving.
The mobile is on a stand.
I told the officer i was not watching i was only listening to the music and mobile was facing other way.
Officer gave me words of advice and then took my details and after a few minutes told me i could go.
No probs so far.
He then phoned my employers and told them he was concerned for my safety.
I only found out when a fellow officer came looking for me.
As far as i was concerned the matter was finished.
I did not log it either.
Fellow officer told me that a call had been recieved and that the matter had been escalated to the manager.
No probs here.
The manager phoned me the follwoing day and told me i was suspended pending a investigation and that suspension would be unpaid.
I have been to the investigation meeting and i was shown a picture of me sitting in my van with the mibile facing me.
I was told this was taken by the other officer and he was allowed to do this.
I have now been told that a decision will be taken and if needed a disciplinary will be held.
I have been told not to contact any of my fellow workers.
What do i do ?
