I'm starting to feel really sorry for the poor people that seem to have taken what happened yesterday and sided with Boris Johnson. It seems as though his political stunt has drawn them in and he now (to them) looks as though he's being tough and standing up to these horrible EU bullies. So that when it all falls flat in October Downing Street can continue to blame the EU.
Still people are taking in the lies and gamesmanship of Boris Johnson.
Speaking as a former union rep, I would maintain that it is best to gen yourself up on your legal rights and not put your faith in a third party who may be stressed out and exhausted themself.
My best advice right now is to record the meeting if you can. You will find what is said and done at disciplinary meetings and what goes down as the official record can differ greatly.
Arrived early, knocked on the door and waited to be asked to take a seat can be recorded as arrived 15 minutes late, slammed into the room and hurled herself into a seat... I've seen this happen with my own eyes.
The salvage is legally yours, the third party insurers have no liability or contract of ownership to take you bike, just pay you what the bike is worth less what you could reclaim for the salvage costs on the open market. They have dealt with their legal liability under indemnity and played this by the book.
Have you asked Plantec if they will scrap it for you? or if they will ask the third party insurers to scrap it for you ? Often they will, they just need to be asked.
Other than that arrange a scrappie, etc, and if you can't get £300 get some evidence to show this and claim the difference, if you get more, don't tell them
No, it's extremely unlikely that they will dismiss you, although not impossible.
I have heard that some employers even sack staff like in the movies, "you're fired!"
Fortunately this doesn't happen often, in fact I never had confirmation of such things.
You should've received an invitation to a disciplinary meeting, in that there should be an explanation of why you're being called and possible outcome.
i.e. misconduct, breached attendance policy.
You might receive a final written warning.
What does that letter say?
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
