I urgently need some help. My employer hauled me into the office last Wednesday out of the blue and suspended me. They said they had found some documents on the work computer that were personal to me and they needed to investigate their contents. Months back when applying for PIP I was advised to keep a copy, so after my shift finished one day I scanned it on works scanner and emailed myself the scanned documents. This was done on my own time and we have no policy regarding the use of works equipment. I then forgot about it as it was completely insignificant.
Now, my manager has found these scans, read eveything I put on my PIP form and has now accused me of being dishonest as they don't see that I am like I have stated when I am in work. I have fibromyalgia which fluctuates and is an "invisible" chronic illness. If I showed the true extent of how I feel all day every day I would be complaining 24/7. It's just not practicle, and like most sufferrers I just grin and bear it until I can get home to crash.
My employer is threatening to sack me, accusing me of dishonesty and questioning my trustworthiness. I am absolutely sickened to my stomach at this as I am the most honest, trustworthy person you could ever meet, something which I have always prided myself on, and it has shaken my whole identity.
Any advice would be most gratefully received before my disciplinary meeting that they have called for Tuesday.
Thank you very much,
