    I’ve had a grievance appeal of a failure to provide reasonable adjustments at work and failure to follow the company’s tailored adjustment policy upheld. They have only addressed my needs as far as a hearing loop goes. I’ve since been given a whole raft of adjustments following an A2W and OH assessment whilst suspended. Yet, they haven’t acknowledged that these were should have been offered two years ago. I’ve been suspended for allegations of gross misconduct that are related to my disability. What effect should this appeal result have on any disciplinary proceedings? 
    I’m still suspended and have been since Aug 2019.

    Anyone able to help? Or should the disciplinary still go ahead without any further review following an admission from the employer that RA's were not provided or policy followed correctly..

    I think I gave advised before 

    Disciplinary would be separate procedure to grievance 

    It is not normal to be suspended for this length if time 

    You need to get some expert advice without knowing all the details nobody on here can comment 

    I suggest you contact ACAS for advice
