Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Hi
I am a New Zealand lawyer based in Wellington and will help you with your question today. Please give me a minute to read the question

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

I hope your employer has told you that you can have a support person at any employment meeting. If you have had a relationship with someone at your work that can make matters difficult if the relationship is not working. If there are serious allegations, it is more usual for your employer to suspend you to investigate rather than dismiss you on the spot, unless these are very serious allegations with very strong evidence. You will probably have more questions about what happens, so feel free to ask further

Customer
If I get an instant dismissal from work do I have the right to hand in my resignation?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

You can resign, although if they dismiss you it wouldnt be necessary. You can offer to resign, before they decide to dismiss you

Customer
a resignation is the same as a dismissal?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Yes, they are the same

Customer
I have an investment is this considered as second employment?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

No, it is not work because that requires you to do something. An investment is passive

Customer
My suspension is a week before employer make their decision after hearing my story. Is a week long enough? To me it is very short and painful
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

That is the usual time in serious cases

Customer
I have done wrong, i have been zooming online whilst working, I have an investment for mine and children future manely for the kids. This is part of the serious allegations because I had not informed my employerI have done wrong, i have been zooming online whilst working, I have an investment for mine and children future manely for the kids. This is part of the serious allegations because I had not informed my employer
Customer
Most of this is around the investment and my co worker was part of it yet she made these allegations against me I have a good chance of dismissal tomorro and she carries on working is this fair?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Was the investment related to your job? Were you doing work on your investment while you were at work and did this affect your job?
Customer
i was alone when I was at work
Customer
The investment is no part of my job
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

If this didn’t affect your job it may not be dismissal but if your job suffered then they likely can fire you
Customer
Co worker was part of the zoom she is the one who put in the complaints she also used some outside personal statements My question is why was she affected?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

She may be jealous

Customer
On the personal side she ended up in a friendly but a relationship thingy with him to find out after a while that he still was in love with me My intuition is telling me that this is what the whole entire thing is about. I don't know what to do and I am scared.
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

It can be difficult where there are personal relationships
Customer
Is anything personal outside work is considered part of work because we both are co workers?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Yes, they do overlap

Customer
Chris it has been a pleasure to meet you Iat this moment I have nothing else to say other than Thank you.
