There are many types of investigation. A criminal investigation is one we are all familiar with and the right to silence is something that anyone who has ever watched a cop show knows to exercise.
But what about an investigation which is conducted by your employer?
You are entitled to know exactly what is alleged against you.
You are entitled to have an opportunity to respond. What if you do not want to reply – you don’t have to!
You are entitled to have the investigation conducted by someone independent. The decision maker cannot be accuser, judge and executioner!
It is important that you are treated fairly and with respect.
If you have any questions about your rights the time to ask them is straight away and not at the end of an already intimidating process.
Asking a Solicitor at the start of the process will give you confidence during the process. If the end of your relationship with this particular employer has come we will ensure that you are treated fairly and get the compensation you deserve.
