I worked for a Local Authority for over four years. In 2016, our Technical Officer was promoted and his position was vacant. Management planned to appoint their favourite person on the post. As the candidate was not good in IT, Management changed the Position to Operations Support Officer. I applied for for the post but was not selected. This new role was supposed to be high grade with low money. As in my current role there was some contractual OT and evenings n weekends. But the selected candidate was paid according to previous role even working for less hours. It continued for over 6 Months. During job advert, it was made very clear that money will be low. I raised a grievance for unfairness and corruption against management. In the meantime, I travelled for extended holidays abroad and was involved in Motorbike accident. I was sick for over two months abroad. I sent the medical certificates. On my arrival, investigations started. And I was alleged for Fraud and Dishonesty. I was suspended, and finally Dismissed for Main allegations were Medical Certificates are not valid. Hospital does not exist. During this period, grievance investigation was concluded that selection was not unfair, although Candidate was getting extra payments. I took the Grievance to Stage 2. In the meantime, I am dismissed. After dismissal, I received letter that I can no longer continue with the grievance, as I am no longer employee of the Organisation. Can organisation do that??? I appealed against my dismissal. Also, I involved ACAS for early reconciliation. If I get reinstated, what options I have??? If They agree for some sort of settlement, how can we calculate the settlement??? I need advice please. Thanks a lot in advance.
