Today I was at the bargaining council for my arbitration hearing and the employer did not send a representative. The commissioner decided to proceed with the hearing and my attorney presented the evidence that I was unfairly dismissed and that the disciplinary hearing was unfair. The commissioner appears to have accepted all our evidence and said that he will issue me with a certificate outlining my award. So it seems that I have won this case. My question is what will the employer do once he is notified of the outcome, will he apply for a rescission and delay the process. I suspect the company will use whatever means they have to to avoid paying out an award.
