Hello everyone. This morning my boyfriend was informed that he is to attend a disciplinary hearing at work. He is not a teacher, let's just say he works in a masculine, physical industry. To cut a long story short, last weekend his company attended a posh function which he had to leave early. He informed his boss of this fact a few days beforehand. However when he came to leave he apparently ended up 'upsetting' the person who arranged the table and food and so on (by leaving) and my boyfriend's boss had to call him and apologise today. Here's the thing. This boss didn't even attend this function. He is now claiming that my boyfriend "100% didn't tell him" he would be leaving early. Basically I am at work and I feel sick with worry. I have a basic understanding of how these hearings work but do you think it's likely he would be let go? He recently had an appraisal and got straight As for everything (things like attitude to work and attendance etc.) I think his boss is embarrassed that my boyfriend may have made the company look bad- but he did tell him he would be leaving early- a disciplinary just seems so harsh. Especially when that appraisal flagged up that one worker fiddles his hours and lots of other things- did he get so much as a warning? No. Even so, the hearing is in 4 days and I just can't function, I am so worried.
