It has been two weeks since I appealed against my dismissal, I have sent one letter and I am just about to send another, recorded delivery. At the hearing I was told my appeal was made late (the letter of dismissal never mentioned a window for appeal) but I was being given the benefit of the doubt, I was also told I would be informed of the decision by the end of the week (2/3 days later).
What I would like to know is If i was taken back would I be payed for the period from being dismissed to being reinstated? If so what if they offer to take me back but without payment? Also I mentioned to the manager at the appeal about an earlier incident with a colleague which was similar to my own which resulted in my dismissal, this happened several months earlier, he told me the earlier incident could not be used, is this right.
I appreciate if someone can help.
