A highly professional manager has been informed by a team member who was being disciplined that a colleague (to the manager) who was hearing/leading the disciplinary meeting that they (the colleague) implied that the manager was involved. The individual disciplined also informed the manager that an employee representative had also tried to implicate the manager in an adjournment which will not be in the meeting notes.
The manager concerned has raised their concern to their senior management team. In this situation the manager has not been involved.
What is the legal position of manager? What options are available to the manager?
