Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi, I returned from 3wks annual leave to my manager advising he is wanting to arrange a meeting with HR to review my performance. I was advised of this on monday and havent heard anything. I believe my manager is working to have me dismissed. Would it be advisable to hand in my resignation while they do what they need too as this is causing alot of stress to me
JA: What kind of workplace is this (private sector, public sector, etc.)? How many employees?
Customer: private sector, over 500 employees
JA: Have you requested a reasonable accommodation? What happened?
Customer: I work in a call centre and he said he found silent calls from me, calls where i couldnt hear clients but the phone recording heard the client. Ive been with the compang for over 9yrs. I know i made a mistake by not calling the them back

Customer: Im happy for work to continue their investogation and put whatever finds they have but the i believe even with a warning working there wont be the same with my new manager

If you don’t want to continue there you could resign if you don’t want the stress of an investigation. It appears from your description they want to give you a warning but you don’t have to resign with that
Customer
am i able to resign effective immiediately but still have them run thru their investigation.

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Once you leave they probably won’t bother with the investigation
Customer
one more thing. do i need to give notice if its in my contract. i understand i wont get paid alot of benefits if no notice given

You should have a discussion about resigning and they may agree to a package to let you resign with holiday pay etc
Customer
sorry, if i resign would I be entitled to severance pay or is that at the employers discretion

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

You will get your pay up to when you finish, plus any accrued holiday pay
