Legal BodyWorkplace Adjudicator Service (WAS)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionDismissal, Absence and Sickness, Discipline and Grievance
The Complainant contended that he was forced to resign from his employment due to his treatment by the Respondent. The contention commenced when the Complainant had to take eight days off from 26th of February 2021 to the 6th March 2021 to mind his children as his daughter was in hospital. The Complainant was issued with a final written warning when he returned to work on the 12th of March 2021. The Complainant had also been given a warning on the 3rd of February 2021, following a disciplinary hearing for previous absences since September 2020. He was unable to appeal the warning from February as the time to do this had already expired by the time it was received.
