    Default Resignation during investigation

    Im currently suspended awaiting a hearing regarding a misconduct concern that I feel is a very extreme reaction and I feel im to be made an example of. I have only been employed there 2 months and I am going to resign to save misconduct being on my record. If I do so, can my employer state anything on a reference that states I was under disciplinary proceedings or investigation? I am not going to refer to the investigation in my resignation.
    Can they refuse to accept my resignation or give me my 7 days notice?
    Thank you

    Hi @Hmurphy. If you hand in your notice so that you can say to any prospective new employer that you resigned rather than being dismissed then the issue you will have is although that is correct, if your new employer asks your current employer for a reference they may disclose that you resigned pending a disciplinary.

    Also even if you did hand in your resignation then the employer can still opt to pursue the disciplinary regardless of your resignation right up to the date your notice runs out.
    I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
    If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.

    You are braver than you believe, smarter than you think and stronger than you seem.
