    Suspended but asked what I did wrong 7th Jul 17 at 3:08 AM
    Hi all,

    A couple of weeks after the birth of my daughter I was suspended from work. They actually initiated it all the day before we went into hospital. When they emailed the request I asked what it was about as I was stressed and they said they had a couple of things to talk about and ended the mail with a smiley face.

    I was told I was being suspended due to an allegation into a breach of trust and confidentiality but not further details were given.

    There is a second allegation into attitude and behaviour but that's not what the suspension is about.

    I had to think hard what this could be and came up with something quite insignificant but in black and white could meet this description.

    At the investigation meeting I still wasn't told but was asked to tell them what I thought it might be. So I told them, but isn't this a tad unfair? I may be completely wrong and am just giving them evidence?

    They also didn't ask me the reason, or background, Which caused me to do what I did , but reworded what I said using the word knowingly, which it was not.

    Apologies if this is too cryptic

    Why should the employer apologise for investigating a complaint?
    The investigation isn't the problem, it is the putting of the OP under a sword of Damocles. The employer should apologise, if they have put the OP through a stressful experience without probable cause. I bet that if the OP accused the CEO of calling them a !!!!!!! !!!!, HR would not suspend the CEO, and call them in for an investigation meeting.
