Hi someone please help!!!

 

i have been off for 2 weeks on "paid gardening leave" this is due to being investigated for putting the council into disrepute by contacting the HSE. The only proof they have is my phonebill with x2 calls on it to them, which i admitted to as being me returning their calls as my mums boyfriend called and put the complaint in. I have not admitted to it and stuck to the fact that it wasnt me! they knew it was either my colleague or i who did it, but they have dismissed her from the case and she's safe. My hearing is in 5 days but they have ordered me to return to work monday, when all this came about i went to the doctors and they said wanted to sign me off with "work related stress" i declined but now believe i need this time off. Thing is if i am signed off for 4 weeks can they dismiss me for not being fit to attend the hearing due to my reasons for being signed off??? i basicaly need out of the hell hole its making me ill and im now on anti anxiety medication due to it :o(

 

Please someone help!!!!

Hi

1. what was the issue highlighted to the HSE? Would it be covered by Public Interest Disclosure Act?

 

2. Most councils will have a grievance policy which will allow for postponement of any hearing due to ill-health. If you have a doctors certificate saying you are unable to attend the hearing due to ill-health, they would most likely postpone the hearing. Phone up your HR and ask to speak to someone confidentially and ask their advice- also ask for the policy.

 

3. Are you in the Union? If so contact them immediately. If not, check if youre covered under your household (or even car) insurance.


I am not a lawyer, so all my advice is provided on the basis that you will check them with a trained legal professional with legal insurance.:(

it was due to safety issues, im an enforcement officer and they was wanting us to issue fines to drunk people outside a pub for dropping cigarettes!! I dont feel confident in contacting HR as shes a (edit)!!! my doctor will sign me off no problem..... i am in the union so will contact them tomo.

 

If i get signed off for 4 weeks do they need to wait until then to have the hearing??
