Youd only be able to rearrange for something important since its a disciplinary. Not simply because its your day off and you had plans. To the employer it would look as if you had total contempt for the proceedings.

 

What is the disciplinary for. Are you in a union? Has there been an investigatory meeting ?

 

Edit: suspended on full pay usually means its serious, and as they have to follow the rules, they suspended on full pay while they investigated. You should have used this time to prepare your side of the story, and not try and shrug it off.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

They can hold it without you if you refuse to go...

 

How much notice did you get?


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

Do you mean that you are never work Fridays, ie you aren't employed by them on Fridays? Or do you mean that you are a full time employee working on a shift or rota basis and this Friday when they want to hold the disciplinary you weren't rota'd to be at work?

 

If you aren't employed to work on Fridays I don't think they can insist you come in.

 

But if it's just that you weren't rota'd to work this Friday I suspect they can say that being suspended means that your rotas are changed and you must come in for the meeting.

If it is a disciplinary hearing then you have a right to be accompanied by a Union rep or work colleague. Have you been advised of this? How long have you had to prepare for the meeting?

 

What would be the case if your Union Rep or colleague was not available on that day. A 'reasonable' employer should postpone the meeting to allow you to have everything in place. Of course it may depend what your 'plans' are - a medical appointment might be one thing but it it is just meeting up with friends of going shopping then it may be that attending a meeting to decide your future employment might reasonably be seen as more of a priority


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