Hi guys,


As many of you who have helped me out will know I am currently going through a disciplinary at work which has been badly handled in my and other peoples opinions. As a result of the disciplinary I am off work sick, however I was also suspended last week and my disciplinary upgraded to the highest level.


A link to my old thread is here so you can see the background of the case if you need to:





Okay, so here's where my new question(s) are and I need some advice.


Im off work, suspended- the disciplinary is scheduled for this Thursday and will go ahead without me being there (as advised by my GP) as I do not feel I can attend, or that my presence will make any difference to the outcome. I am expecting to be dismissed.


So- the contract I am employed under is due to run out at the end of September. The way the company operates with many members of staff is to keep them on rolling 3 month contracts - it saves on redundancies I presume.


As my contract is due to end in less than 2 weeks, I was sure that they had to tell me if it was being renewed or not NOW? Everybody else in the office was told approx. 2 weeks ago that their contracts have been extended...but I have had no news telling me it will or it wont.


Due to the disciplinary, and the likelihood of me being dismissed this week- would that have any bearing? Even if it meant I could "leave" without being "fired" that would be a big help...being dismissed will seriously damper my chances of finding another job any time soon...the other members of staff that were dismissed are struggling to get interviews as they were fired for gross misconduct.


Please help! Thank you

Assuming that your contract contains an end date, then not telling you anything means that it won't be renewed - probably no matter what happens. But I am afraid that leaving before being dismissed won't help now - any reference can say that at the time you left your were pending a disciplinary for gross misconduct (which I assume is what the allegation is) and that is no better than "sacked for gross misconduct" on a reference. I am not going to tell you that this won't dint your chances of employment - that's be silly because it obviously will. But I would suggest that you tell potential employers the truth when asked - express your remorse and regret, and how you have learned your lesson, and being given a chance to show that will make you the best employee they ever had. It has been known to work. Most people try to hide it, and that always gets found out. You may have to move back in your aspirations for a while and take what is out there, or lower grades - but people do recover from being dismissed.
