  • Disciplinary for non-existent policy

    Hi. I need some advice. I recently lost £10 at my workplace and have been told I am going to be brought into a disciplinary meeting for it. I explained to my line manager that the company doesn't have a policy regarding cash differences so what are you basing the meeting on? He said he can still bring me in. I phoned HR and they confirmed there is no cash difference policy however it is dealt with locally. I explained to them that I have a copy of my contract and it states in my contract that I am only in breach of my contract if I break a policy and if any new policies are created then I will be informed as they form part basis of my contractal obligations but they seemed to dumb to understand that if I am being brought into a meeting for something then I'm in breach of something for that to happen. I can't be sent a letter stating I maybe dismissed from the company pending the outcome of this meeting when I haven't broken any policy that the company has? It's ridiculous. This can't be right can it? All help appreciated.¬*

    I presume you work in retail/bar or somewhere where you handle cash and your till was short by £10.

    Have you checked your disciplinary policy as that sometime gives examples of what is considered to be something that would lead to disciplinary action. Is till shortages one of them?
    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.

      Appalling use everything CCTV evidence staff policy if till who was on till prior to you and proof of balance before handover .. do not wish to alarm but they are either saying you do not understand procedure or accusing of theft the policy of staff being responsible for shortfalls disgusting fight for all you are worth.If they weigh balance they are wrong Tesco's etc weight till balance based on English notes won complaint with them as N.Irish notes. Scottish etc actually weigh different from English age of notes varies as well be strong do not let them bully you Good luck lots of options here
