  1. Thank you for your response, SarEl. At the meeting (I went alone) I was told they would be sending me a list of Internal Vacancies for the next four weeks and if there was nothing appropriate for me they would be terminating my contract. I will be paid one month's wages in lieu of notice plus any backdated holiday pay owing. This is because I cannot agree to one part of my job description where I must help sort out any clerical problems in the department I worked in. These 'clerical problems' are the one and only reason that I had to take time out with stress. After the last meeting they trie
  2. My grievance meetings were fairly informal, and I'm sure any problems that have cropped up since you made your original grievance can be discussed at this grievance meeting. You should then be advised by your employer/ personnel dept if a further grievance should be made. Throughout my grievance process I was advised by my union to raise a further grievance as my employer had taken too long to respond to my appeal letter. I didn't do this, but made sure that it was documented at the appeal meeting. Since my appeal, I have raised a further grievance about the aggressiveness of my manager
  3. Sorry to be a pain, but I have a lengthy ongoing dispute with my employer (which has been documented on here), and have been invited to my next meeting with a personnel representative and area manager. I have noticed a change in the usual wording of these letters. I am entitled to bring along a family member to this meeting, rather than just a work colleague or certified union rep. I'm almost certain they will be referring me to the OHS on the grounds of capability. Is this why I can take a family member to this meeting? Would anyone recommend me doing this, as I don't think any member of my

  5. Thank you for your comments. It is good to have an objective opinion, however much I don't like hearing it! I have an appointment at the CAB next week, where I'm sure I'll receive exactly the same advice. Perhaps it is time to accept the world just isn't fair sometimes and move on. The doctor at my Occupational Health interview told me to stop torturing myself about why they were doing this, as I would never find an answer. Thanks again.
  6. Apologies for my ranting, I feel I'm getting to the end of my tether. My issues at work are not just health and safety related; I was put under a lot of stress by the actions (or inactions) of a fellow employee. We had no specific job descriptions and I felt the amount of work left for me to do was unreasonable. I spoke with my line manager about this (aswell as the h & s issues) on numerous occasions, and I kept being promised that something would be done about it. After months of this, I got to the point where I would be crying at my desk, working unpaid overtime in a panic to get things
  7. Hi. I've posted on here numerous times before about my situation, but would properly appreciate the advice of an employment lawyer. I've been off sick for over a year now with work-related stress, anxiety and depression. I exhausted the grievance procedure many months ago. My union just saw whistleblowing in my case and I soon dropped them as they were no help whatsoever.All I want is for my management to acknowledge the awful things that were going on and do something about it. I was sent for an OHS psychatric report and they told my employer they had to accept compromises. They also s
  8. This kind of thing flipping annoys me. I can only imagine how intimidating it must have been having 3 of your colleagues turn up on your doorstep like that. I hope you told them to go away. Ask for anything they say to be put in writing to you, that's basically the only advice I can give. At least then you have the time to consider.
  9. I would say that you're in a bad situation if the company you work for is a big national. They must surely have their own IT peeps whether in-house or on contract. Personally, if it was a small place I would be busting my ass to sort the problems out as without a solution it would be causing hell.
  10. Thanks everyone for your help. I'm so overwhelmed when I come on here to see how many people are struggling and suffering at the hands of their employers. I've had my copy of my OHS report that is being sent to my employer this week. I am on tenterhooks, but feel a hell of a lot better for reading it. They have deemed my situation as DDA qualifying if brought to a tribunal, which I found heartening. They say the stumbling block now is managerial and they should arrange a meeting with me to discuss what changes need to happen. My problem now is coming up with 'reasonable' requests for c
  11. Having worked in the DSS just after the CSA came into being, I can't honestly paint a good picture. It was initially seen as a great move forward but after a few months of reality became a bit of an embarrassment and a paperwork headache. There was a bloke on the news the other day that was claiming Disability Living Allowance for a bad back but they had footage of him as a children's entertainer and a gym coach. The thing that puzzles me is why there's no crackdown on people claiming 'ordinary' benefits such as Jobseekers Allowance.
  12. Clemma, I think you would need to seek advice from someone suitably qualified. Perhaps talk things over for a good while before you go down this path. It's not the kind of thing that's easily accessible for good reason. Dealing with someone you can 'buy' from the yellow pages is not a good idea. I have memories from being a toddler, but certainly can't remember every holiday I had as a child. The memories I do have have obviously been helped along the way by photos and snippets from my family.
