Customer: I was contacted yesterday afternoon and told that I have to have a meeting with Human Resources and my manager today at 10am via teleconference about a complaint made against me and I asked what it is about and I have allegedly said something and a complaint has been made about me. Do I have to be given more notice than this? Should I have access to the complaint made about me
JA: Some laws are different depending where you are, so could you clarify what state you're in?
Customer: NSW
JA: Do you have any court dates or documents relevant to this situation?
Customer: i have nothing only the phone call from yesterday
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Hi! You’re speaking with John Melis, a solicitor in Australia.

The employer can call a meeting on you at any time. The key aspect of this meeting is that you raise any questions when allegations I put towards it. Then also state that you need time to address those allegations as it is the first time you've hearing of those claims.
Customer
Basically they wouldn’t tell me who made the allegations against me and they wouldn’t disclose the actual information meaning the written complaint about me. I was told that in the future don’t bother contacting Human Resources or management from the depot I work out of with any grievances that I may have. I was hounded to give them information about other employees so they could get to the bottom of the original incident and I don’t believe that it’s my job to do this.
This all started over a alleged incident in which a employee ejaculated into a cup and they were staying at a motel. A member of the community who permanently resides at the motel had the seman put into his drink unbeknown to him and he drank it and the incident was allegedly filmed. Another incident occurred about the same time where it is alleged that they got the mans toothbrush and basically scrubbed the toilet with the toothbrush and then put it back. A lot of people are disgusting by it and filming it adds to the severity of the alleged incident. The video was meant to have been deleted but some people had the video sent to them and they know it’s true that the incident occurred.
Now a heap of rumours are going around about the incident and most people can’t understand why the police have not been contacted. I allegedly called someone a dirty dog and I denied saying this

What you can do in this particular situation is raise a claim with the fair work commission immediately. You can complete the general protection provisions form of the fair work commission website. If they were commission will then help you with this employment situation.
