Looking for some info & advice regarding my situation.
I work abroad for a construction company. Long story short I assaulted my work colleague (who is also my house mate) outside of work hours in our company provided apartment. The guy has been strongly provoking me with several sneaky behind the back tactics for months. He has also falsly reported me to HR behind my back. I had enough of his antics & punched him in the face 3 times.
Following the incident I had an interview with HR. They stated that the matter was “very serious” & that I would be informed of diciplinary action within 3 days.
What can I expect at this next meeting? Can I expect to be fired?
This happened outside of work hours & I understand that the company cannot fire you because of this, however I am concerned that it occured in a company rented apartment. Will this have any influence on the decision?
Secondly the guy is a rat & this is not an unprovoked attack. I have bitten my tongue & not punched this guy on several occassions.
Thirdly, this is a first time offense, I have had no problems up until now.
Any suggestions or info that I can arm myself with going into this second meeting will be much appreciated.
