I work in the lab in major multinational pharmaceutical company, last week I did something rather stupid at work.Basically I got caught out in a lie.My supervisor was informed and she let me know that she would be setting up a meeting with hr to discuss this and my performance in other issues within the last year.I have since had that meeting which was quite formal, there was no arguing and everyone was cordial with each other. I was given a document with every mistake/errors I have made since I joined the company over a year ago.this ranged from deviations I needed raise due to mistakes I made while performing tests, low training score poor GMP etc.
I have been asked to write a writen reponse to this document and hand it back within the next few days.I have to say in my defence that a few of those details that were raised was not entirely my fault and I also successfully passed my 6 month probation and 1 year review.
I am not sure how to respond, should I accept responsibilty that my performance to date has not been up to standard and hope to get the oppourtunity to improve or should I be more defensive and argue why I think some of the issues raised were not entirely my fault.
Do you think I will be sacked or just warned
Thanks for your help
