    Resignation help

    Resignation help 22nd Jun 19 at 11:14 PM
    I posted a thread earlier but requested for it to be closed as I wanted to remove some details.

    I was suspended in early June pending internal investigations. Since then I have accepted that I would be resigning and have been preparing to move on.

    I have received a letter this week requesting me to attend a disciplinary interview on Monday. The letter has some evidence from colleagues and it's very clear cut - I am guilty as charged .

    I know I must resign and I am very happy to, but I want to ensure I do it correctly with the least mess possible.

    Should I resign now and not attend the hearing? Should I attend the hearing and resign there? If I do resign will it have to be with immediate effect because a disciplinary process is ongoing?

    If you resign, you need to give the correct notice. I would take your resignation letter to work on Monday, and give it to your manager first thing. They should know that you have the disciplinary meeting, so just ask them to find out if you need to attend. (If they don't know about the meeting, tell them and ask them to find out if you need to attend.) I think you may have to go to the meeting, but given you have resigned, they will probably just go through the motions of reviewing the situation, make a note that you have resigned and wrap the meeting up quickly so that it takes no more time than absolutely necessary, then you can go back to work. Alternatively, if they find you guilty of gross misconduct, they may use their rights to terminate your contract there and then, and have you leave immediately.
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am down for gross misconduct unfortunately and it is my line manager who is running with it. I would still like to get out of this mess as soon as possible. I spoke to HR during my suspension and they said that it would be possible to resign and prevent the disciplinary hearing but given that my hearing is first thing tomorrow and HR don't open till 9:00 I will have no time to clarify before hand.

    Fortunately I've not been here long so I can leave it off my CV without it being too much of an issue for future employment (I hope).

    Are HR not facilitating the meeting ? Unusual if they are not. If you have already discussed resigning with HR, why haven’t you resigned ?

    It's unclear in the paper work whether or not HR will attend. I know my manager and a impartial observer will be there for taking meeting minutes. I've read it a few times but I don't think HR will be there.

    I actually have decided I will call early tomorrow and notify one of the other managers who is on site and giving him a heads up. I will then call HR and ask them for guidance.

    I am looking forward to hopefully getting out of this whole situation and being in the clear tomorrow evening. I've all but removed and blocked everyone from social media.
