Sleeping On The Job Accusation
Am just curious if anyone working in security has had to go through this kind of thing before. Long story short, I've been accused of sleeping whilst on duty as a security guard (rest assured this was NOT the case) and am wondering where I stand on this?
Other than me asking them to produce proof of the accusation I can't think of anything else that I can say or do. I have already stated that my company can check the security logs I wrote for the day in question (which they took photocopies of) but other than this I'm at a loss.
Thus far all I have been told by a friend who has some legal expertise is that they shouldn't be able to do anything since they've been unable to provide any evidence to show the accusation is true other than the word of the person who reported it (the guy is a bit miffed that his wife was removed from her reception post due to being incompitent at her job and I think he is blaming the security team for it which includes me). Just to clarify he works for the same company and was the one who recommended his wife for that post to our manager (who he's good friends with it seems).
Any advice will be welcome and if anyone can recommend some good legal council I can consult that would also be very useful. I don't want something like this smearing my record especially when it's not true so want to fight it with everything I can. Am just at a loss on where to start.
Thanks in advance.
