  1. Considering the latest news about PFI, would it not be an ideal time for labour to table a motion calling for a vote of no confidence and trigger a general election. I do not think I am stereotyping but I am sure a lot of UDP members work in the industry and they might have second thoughts propping up tories. Why would it be a bad idea to try ?

  3. Hi and thanks for any who can help. I raised grievance for bullying, and periodic aggressive attacks on me by secretary (relation to owner). last straw was when the owners "secretary" said she was giving my admin work of home office stuff and staff files to senior care assistant. she is studying her NVQ sorry now QCF level 5. my roles are admin and Activities as per my contact. I have had attacks on me since 2011 but was unable to do grievance until now as 1. did not have employee handbook until 2012. 2. because of aggression 3. changed of matrons' who did not want to deal with my concerns or who were being bullied their selves. The care assistant has been gradually taking over most of my admin work , i have had all good feed back in the past and now, so apart from care assistant just starting her QCF, i dont know why, she relabeling, she's auditing "my" staff files' and even tried to publicly critise.even nurses are asking care staff member to do forms for them, so am unsure what they have been told too. Anyway i raised grievance, yesterday the owner asked to speak to me, she said it;s informal chat , then started asking me questions which relate to the grievance, said i would like you to focus more on activities and anyone can do admin, then said she did not know anything about the grievance/ meeting due next day today... the person who wanted to take the notes is also related but yesterday denied any knowledge of the arranged grievance hearing* when last week he called me over and said the grievance letter it.s no biggee we can sort out, perhaps we can have meeting next thursday or friday i will do a letter I said next friday would be better for me, whilst he walked passed meyesterday he told a staff member that he would not be in tomorrow. So in the end the owner said she would be coming in to the initial hearing. Today 1 hour at 1pm ish before hearing she had bad head and headed off to hospital, i was asked to put meeting back later to 3pm. at 2.46pm she rang , said she was at hospital having blood tests, i asked about our grievance hearing as the home manager who was to take the meeting was on annual leave after today. she said are you in on monday i said yes, she said it's only a grievance , i can do it on monday without the home manager.. so now im worried. firstly she tried to have informal chat in the middle of process, she is the owner and she would be the person who i would need to appeal to after the home manager has done his investigation. Now she wants to hold herself without the home manager being present..she's broke our own employee handbook policies and procedures with regard to grievances. she did ask me if i wanted to do an NVQ, i feel she's trying to sweep under the carpet. what do i do when she calls for an informal chat to deal with a formal grievance monday. grateful for advice, thanks so very much all.
  4. Hi, I would appreciate some advice please. My name was disclosed, by social services, to a family after I reported somethings that some children had told me and that was of concern in regards to their welfare. I have suffered almost 2 years of daily harassment and intimidation from this family, the police have been involved and they recommended to have a community alarm as a vulnerable person. Which I have to pay rental on as I am too young for funding. I put a complaint through and saw through investigation to stage 2 where the complaint was upheld and that my confidentiality had been breached. The social worker refused to believe police were involved (despite me giving them crime reference numbers). On top of this, the social worker continued to disclose details of the complaint and investigation to the family resulting in further intimidation. This was happening at the school gates daily, was overspilling into those children bullying my children and was the last straw and I had to remove my children from the school. The investigator told me to ask for the cost of the distress, the alarm, plus financial losses (I have had to cease my home visit business due to odd phone calls) but investigation report told me to claim compensation from the local authority but denied my business suffered because of the disclosure. I also want to claim petrol and car costs to get the children to and from their new school also. But I am not sure what to do for this and I guess this is where they expect me to give up. A solicitor will cost me money but will this get me more money? How much is a breach like this worth? I still don't go out on my own locally, I even changed my car as my old one was quite distinctive. This has totally changed my life. I want to claim liquidated damages if possible, so they learn and do not do this to others. The reported ordered all social workers to undergo further data protection training so I assume that disclosure is a serious issue. Any thought on how to proceed would be most appreciated. Thanks.
