  3. Hi there I did a google search on this and have read a few threads on here regarding this but thought id ask about my own personal case. I have been suspended from work since the 16th of july after i appeared in a news paper article naming me but not the company i work for nor the clients site ( i am a industrial cleaner working on a private aircraft manufacturing site). It said in the paper i was "high on cannibas" when i supposedly committed this offense but i was acquitted of the charge with a not proven verdict, i stupidly made a false confession for reasons that il keep to myself unless needed, the reason i told the police i was high on cannibas at the time was because my ex's mother told me to say this to lesser my sentence if i got one was schizophrenic people get lesser sentences anyway as i said this was a false confession. I hadnt told my employer about the court case before or after the case ended because frankly i didnt know how to talk about it. They asked me to do a drugs test which i agreed to do which they still haven't arranged but i have just received a disciplinary hearing letter for the 30th of july, there reasons are as follows. 1. Suspicion of drug use whilst working for the company, the site operates a zero tolerance, due to the fact that you drive and operates machinery as well as lone working on the nightshift this is a real concern. In our company handbook it states coming into work under the influence of alcohol or drugs is classed as gross misconduct. 2. Failure to inform your employer that you were attending court as part of a trial aggainst yourself for allegations of a violent behavior, in which your employer andsite client were informed about through a newspaper article naming you, this may have brought both the company and our client into disrepute. 3. Breach of trust and confidence by failing to inform your employer before or after the court case to enable us or the client to prepare for any consequences of the newspaper article. It goes on to say........ This is a serious allegation and, if proven, may be regarded as gross misconduct, therefore any disciplinary action may result in your dismissal from the company. Now this hand book they talk of i have never seen nor have i had a copy of any contract to say if i have to inform them if i where attending court. Its a pretty big well known company, they in my opinion and colleagues opinions are looking for ways of paying people off, they have cut costs and recently paid off 6 employees on the site. I dont see how they can have this meeting without doing the drugs test first?
