    Posted: 04/November/2017 at 12:39
I am a systems xyst worked at a big business for 1.5 years had a new boss come on board 4 months ago and has been working against me. I have now been suspended due to a piece of code in the first line of a piece of software we both use. I did not put this code in and it doesnt have anything to say who put it in there. The boss who acccused me was the one to find this "evidence" while I was suspended, he was also the one to come and grab my it equipment off me and has been in charge of the investigation

My question is whether this has been handled correctly so far and if I am fired for this code if I have unjust termination standing

You haven't been terminated yet, why not ask your boss what it is he believes you should have done differently. If you did not insert the defective code, and the computer has been out of your hands you need to get that fact into the discussion in writing. Don't accuse anyone, just state that you did not insert it, and as the equipment has been out of your hands you do not know who did.

May also be prudent to start looking for another job. This matter has not been handled correctly, the chance of getting you job back is probably slight, but you may be able to use the fact of the poor handling to get a good reference in return for not taking legal action against them (which you probably have little chance of winning anyway).
