There is always a right to appeal. This should have been given to you at the time.

 

It is hard though to say whether or not that would be worthwhile, for as you have already suggested this is a case of one person's word against another with very little witness evidence to back it up. I have known people to be dismissed for Gross Misconduct in similar circumstances, and you do admit that at least in the beginning you shouted and shoved each other. My inclination would probably be to let it go and keep out of trouble for the next 12 months, but it depends on how aggrieved you feel. There is always a risk though that an appeal being heard by a higher manager could result in an increased punishment, not a lesser one!


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

Sorry I guess that's the wrong choice of wording there, I know I have the right to appeal, what I meant was is there any point in doing so!

 

 

The employee handbook does state that the warning could either be reduced in length, taken off completely or simply upheld, can they still increase the punishment even though that isn't mentioned in the handbook?

generally no but in this case it would depend on the attitude of the other person involved and what has happened to them as to whether further more punitive action could be brought. A common clause in employment contracts allows the employer to dismiss for bringing the company into disrepute so it is wise to accept things if they are warranted
