Not service related but your thoughts and advice please. 2 weeks ago I was given 30 minutes warning to attend a meeting with my department head. I went into that meeting expecting to discuss day to day work but the entire meeting was about my attendance at Jury Service and how the time had been allocated. Based on my answers I now face a disiplinary hearing to discuss my absence and misuse of company time.- (They dispute the definitions of release and standby.) Question: Was/should I claim this was a Disiplinary Interview? The hearing is based on this meeting. Just my manager and I were present, No other topic was discussed, If yes should I have been given prior , written warning- or at the least verbal before the meeting started? If yes what sections of Employment Laws have been breached? Thanks.
