I have an employment tribunal hearing on Monday.
I worked with respondent for 4.5 years.
resigned because of 4.5 years of harassment, bullying, race discrimination.
Faced numerous ageist comments from one of employees during first year.
Denied promotion opportunities,
put through capability assessment in 2015 which lasted for 7-8 months despite GP advise against it.
It affected my mental and physical health a lot.
Denied smallest of 'work from home' request when contractors and some of permanent employees could use it at will and sometimes for 3 months.
They say contractors are allowed to work from home.
Put contractors in management position and one of them threatened to put me on capability again in 2017.
There is lot more.
salary differences for same position,
giving minimum 1.9% increment for 2 years and
no increment during year when i was put on capability.
Senior managers talking openly that why he doesn't go away!
when i was seating 6 feet away.
I can't prove any of these.
I don't feel I have much of a case.
But I wanted to raise it.
I HAVE TO!
I went through preliminary hearing today.
I am representing myself.
And respondent has legal counsel on payroll with whom I had been interacting till now.
But today I saw that they hired external solicitor.
I had just one page ET1 with points as bullet points without much details.
Which a very friendly judge in August helped me to elaborate further during PH.
But it is still very basic and I used same document to prepare witness statement by modifying bit.
I went through CBT in 2015,
psychiatric counselling this year after leaving job,
and again planned in near future.
I am claiming six months of salary and pension which I lost while being unemployed.
I have found equal salary job and going back to all this is really stressful.
Can someone please give some highlights of how to go about in hearing.
Today's judge was absolute opposite and all of my requests for extra documents.
Disclosure has been absolutely biased and nothing that helps me.
He was stressing repeatedly that I should prepare for hearing and not focus on peripherals.
I was late in requesting modification to disclosure as new job in demanding and i am still on probation.
What points i should focus on .
What are DOs and DON'Ts.
