Following on from my other posts.....

 

I've had three previous meetings with my employers over a grievance I raised almost a year ago. After the last meeting (I recorded it) and especially with the run up to it, enough was enough and I have now escalated it to an ET.

 

Since starting my ET and on the same day they would have recieved a copy of ET1, I've had three different requests to attend three meetings, with three different people including capability and gross misconduct. I've already told them I hold no trust and confidence in them and I believe they are clearly incapable of following the rules and procedures and are making it up as they go along.

 

With regards to the third meeting. I have already confirmed that I wanted to make a formal complaint when I had the last meeting that I recorded - I've told them numerous times I want to go ahead with it and have put it in writing at least 4 times, but they keep saying I need to do agree that I do want to go ahead and keeps going around in circles :roll:

 

The question is, do I have to attend these meetings or even allow them to amend things now I have started an ET claim? I hold absolute no trust or confidence in them and IMO they have shown they are incapable of holding fair and honest meetings without malice and discrimination.

 

On a last note. When I had previously requested a copy of policy and procedure on grievances, I was told that no such thing existed. I now have a copy of what they say did not exist in my posession :roll:

My grievance started last year. By the time the appeal was heard that was in May of this year and I filed my ET just before the time limit.

 

I sympathise with you over the lack of trust. It's not a nice thing to have to deal with.

I am getting mixed up here John, as I am posting on two threads i think. Can you put in for an ET1 without knowing which law your complaint is about. As I had six years to suffer this, and there around 12 incidents, I think I outlined them in an earlier post. If not I will go to the LRA, and take an Industrial case....

Lily, you have two threads merged into one now, and I seem to have spent a lot of this evening trying to keep everything together.

 

Please leave this thread for live life be happy's problems and continue to post on your own thread.

Lily, you do not have to go but as I said on your other thread the Et may reduce any claim if you didn't allow your employer the opportunity to make good. So I would go. But I would progress the ET at the same time.


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

On another thread now, I had been butting in on this one.......can't go for the ET, as I don't know what law or what I would be claiming under, until I see the greivance decision.....

A brief update:

 

I've not heard anything at all from my employers about any dates, whats happening, etc. I sent a recorded delivery letter to which they replied by email then promptly blocked my email again. They claim they have sent emails and letters with dates and times of hearings and that I have not replied nor attended these meetings. I've not received anything and asked for the post tracking numbers but they just stated that i will shortly recieve the outcome to these meetings which were conducted in my abscence....

 

I recieved there Solicitors ET3 which is laughable, although they claim they have covered everything and are requesting the ET has no jurisdication to hear the case, dismissing my claims as time barred, ridiculous and request for costs.

 

Should I hold on as at the moment I feel like quitting the company before I am GM or is that what they want? Would it change my claim that much if either resigned under duress or should I continue to let them suicide my job out the door?

Hi,

 

I would always say hold on for as long as you can, the moment you resign you loose a lot of employment rights, that while in employment you still have. Let them dismiss you if that's what it comes to, Unfair dismissal is much easier to prove that constructive dismissal. In terms of the ET3, they are always going to write that your case has no basis, they are not likely to admit to it at the first hurdle!

 

Dont worry to much about what they say, about the tribunal, as they will try to put you off. Say they will recover costs (which is extremely unlikely they would win)

 

Regarding your claim, I dont know what your claim is for to see whether it would change it. I guess its on another post.
