Almost a result! At the second part of Susan’s Grievance Hearing, the Morrisons staff were far more courteous than last week. The store manager running the meeting said, inter alia:
- What do you want to achieve out of this? (Susan’s answer was ‘Justice’.)
- Morrisons do have procedures, developed with MENCAP, for cases like hers. However they were not followed in this case.
- In this case, Susan should have been suspended while an investigation occurred.
They gave Susan a photocopy of the ‘resignation letter’. It’s plain as day that all of it apart from the signature wasn’t written by Susan: the letter uses words Susan wouldn’t and is in architect/engineer-style, very neat, capitals.
While they didn’t actually retract the theft allegations, they then offered Susan reinstatement, with back pay. Susan didn’t answer straight away – and there is a further meeting on Thursday morning. Meanwhile the MENCAP advisor is consulting with ACAS over whether Susan should accept Morrisons’ offer.
