I was placed on investigative suspension with pay due to a possible failure to notify management. My badge and key were taken. A claim was filed by another company saying I backed up and dented their dock door. I noticed it prior to exiting the vehicle, but I didn’t think it was me considering I felt no shake and heard no sound when I backed up and pulled forward (I always do at this stop considering how cold it’s been, I get as close to the inside as possible for when I’m scanning(bulk stop)). I was driving an old, beat up w700 that had a bent in back bumper in the middle. The dock door was dented on only on side, but both sides of the bumper still stuck out evenly. My manager had me write a statement and said they would have to investigate it and come to a conclusion. Prior to this I’ve had recent poor performances. An accident and a misuse of a code for 2 hours (wasn’t informed an over-extended break was required when working doubles). After the code misuse incident, my manager told me everyone gets a chance with him and that’s it. He said that was my chance and no more. “It ends here.” And then he pulls me into his office a day later with the suspension paper informing me that the company called him explaining how they think it was me who caused the damage. I’ve never had a write up and never had an employee performance improvement plan. Prior to the beginning of this year, I never even had one verbal and I started January of last year. Mind you, he’s a new manager as well. I go in today to sit down with him and I guess find out whether or not it actually was determined to be me at fault. I’ve been offered a job elsewhere already that I had applied to a week prior to any of this happening (I haven’t been content since becoming swing), but I haven’t received an offer letter, just a verbal acceptance. Any advice on how I should handle this meeting? I’m not sure if I should just quit given the circumstances or if I should try to hear out what will be said with the possibility of being fired. I would hate to allow that not thinking it’s fair reprimandation, but also to potentially place that on applications may hinder future job prospectives. An outsider’s opinion would be greatly appreciated.
