I have been asked to attend a disciplinary meeting with a number of very serious allegations, which are completely false. To cut a long story short, my employer is trying to get rid of me, has colluded with other members of staff and I know that I will not get a fair and impartial hearing.


I believe the disciplinary will result in termination of my employment. Can I resign before the disciplinary? I have only worked there for 5 months, so haveno recourse in the new employment laws to go to tribunal for unfair dismissal.


If I hand in my 1 months’ notice will I still be obliged to go to thedisciplinary meeting?


Please help, the meeting is scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Hello and welcome to CAG. I hope the forum guys will be along later.


I'm not sure that resigning will help you because I think any future reference could say that you resigned while under investigation.


Have you seen any paperwork about the meeting that you have to go to please? The guys may have other questions for you so that they can help, but I'll leave it to them to ask rather than bothering you now with stuff that may not be relevant.


Have you read the ACAS website at all? It has lots of information about disciplinary procedures.


My best, HB

All depends on how much they want to get rid of you. As you are aware, they can dismiss without you having any recourse to a Tribunal, but as HB says, if you resign, then they can still damage your future in terms of being able to state that you were the subject of disciplinary action for GM when you resigned - even if they don't conclude the action before your notice expires.


You may be able to negotiate a compromise agreement whereby you agree to leave quietly with an agreed reference and save them the time and trouble of formal disciplinary action.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
