About Me


  1. Hi, I've had my grievance with my very large employer upheld in full (shocked!) The grievance related to a number of issues which they bullet pointed as Refusal to implement Reasonable adjustments in relation to my disability , attendance and welfare procedures not followed at all Treated unfairly and differently to other employees by my senior manger. Incorrect information given to me which caused me to fear for my job. And confidentiality issues by my team manager. I'm delighted that the investigation was done properly and they took my evidence seriously. The c
  2. I received a written warning at work without any hearing or evidence or disciplinary meeting... just the warning based on what some colleagues said. I raised a grievance as I felt this warning discriminated against me as I work in an all male team, I felt the complaint wouldn't have been raised if I was a male on the team. I also feel that the process would have been dealt with differently if I was a male on the team. They then dismissed me 2 weeks later after I submitted my written grievance. I'm trying to get an understanding of whether disciplinary action can actually be discri
  3. I lodged a grievance against a colleague. A thorough investigation was carried out and my grievance was upheld. There were a number of recommendations made in the report in Oct 2017. One of the recommendations was that me and the colleague attend mediation. It also recommended that if she did not engage in mediation action should be taken via breach of Code of Conduct and/or Dignity at Work Policies. She is saying that her husband is not well so she is not able to participate in mediation at this time. My employer is saying she is not refusing but is delaying. Othe
  4. Hi My partner his off sick from work. A few months ago we started a new business together for when she is finally sacked/leaves etc. She is joint Director and shareholder like me. We have not even done any work yet, all we have done is put money into the business. No wage has been taken out, no dividend taken out, no money at all has come out of our business bank account. The fire service who employs her says you must have permission for another job but nothing about being a director of a company, especially a dormant one. She has had lots of problems at work and put a grievance in fina
  5. Hi, this is my first post so I hope it's in the correct place. Quick history, worked for county council for 10 years, have suffered from a diagnosed mental health disability for the whole time for which I take medication, work are fully aware of this. I reluctantly took out a grievance for disability related issues against my line manager, head of department and a senior manager. The grievance was investigated at the first stage over a very extended period and nothing was found even though I had given them a load of facts which they seemed to ignore so I appealed. In the inter
  6. Hi, My daughter has been working for a relatively small firm for 8 months. In all this time she has felt as if she was being bullied by one of the managers. It got so bad that she raised a grievance against him. In her letter documenting this she included examples of bullying and she also got statements from other members of staff which showed she was being treated differently/unfairly. She received a letter on Tuesday saying the grievance wasn't being upheld. No surprise there, the manager doing the bullying has been there a long time and is friendly with the owner. She was a
  7. Hi all, I had cause in January of this year to raise a grievance about a colleague. To explain, I work alone on a long shift and take over from a person who has worked an identical shift during the previous night (ie we cover a 24 hour period) When I arrived, and he eft, I noticed that he hadnt performed the work that he was supposed to do. This had happened before, but on this occassion, I decided to complain about him, and took photographic evidence to suppport this. When my manager interviewed me, which was about 4 weeks later, he viewed the pictures, and also cctv footage, wh
  8. Hi there Can an employer refuse to investigate a grievance on any grounds?
  9. Hi there, I am new to this and would kindly welcome some advice if anyone could help? I'll keep it brief and to the point. Work for global corporation, my head office based in UK. Employed by this company for nine years, no complaints at all. Had various directors, regional managers and line managers over these 9 years. Company was restructured late December 2014, I inherited a different regional manager and line manager in January (both who work in a different division and have no knowledge of the job I do, regional manger been there for at least 7 years, line manager
  10. my work contract states that I have no fixed contracted hours but I have been doing the same pattern of 48 hrs per week for over a year. I am being paid holiday pay based on my last 12 weeks average hours, which is less because of christmas day and new year closure and also some reduced hours for christmas eve and new years eve. I believe I should be paid holiday based on 48hrs per week which is my normal weekly hours, can someone advise me of the correct holiday calculation that should be followed.
  11. Having no one to talk to, I thought I could post here. I have spoken to my manager at least four times about a member of the team I work with who never even acknowledges me whilst at work, this person seems to be angry at everything, my manager has not done anything apart from the fact she says she will talk to him. Today whilst on holiday I receive a letter to attend a Formal Investigatory meeting because this person has raised a formal grievance against me, no details have been given apart from my alleged behaviour towards them and my percieved attitude, no other detai
  12. Hi everyone,hoping for some help and advice if possible? I returned to work after holiday to be told "somebody has put a grievance in about you, we will have a meeting now to sort it out,you'll need to get a witness" No notice nothing in writing.Went to meeting to be given an envelope which contained five screenshots from my facebook profile.some of them mentioned about how unhappy I was at work. I asked them to tell me what I had done wrong? they couldn't answer me as to what I was specifically being questioned over.no social media policy is in place at work,my workplace is not ment
  13. 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
  14. Hi all, I could do with some advice because I've no idea what I'm doing. Last week, I resigned from my job due to a "hostile environment" - I did so in writing giving the required 30 days notice. I also thanked them for the fantastic opportunity I'd been given at their company. My problem/query is that I am leaving because of one rather toxic staff member but I haven't stated any names in my resignation. I've always been quiet and tried to avoid trouble etc. Unfortunately, I haven't got the confidence to put a grievance even though others have (I'm not the only one). To be hone
  15. I am looking at starting grievance procedures at my work due to discrimination but just wanted some advice as to what discrimination is it and how strong my case is? I have been at the company 6 years now and have always worked flexible since starting (4 long days 7:30-6 in the office and on 5th day at home although still doing work on laptop etc but a lighter touch, contracted hours 35 hours full time and do 40 hours plus every week) I had 1 child when I started there (now 6) and have had 2 children whilst working there (4,1) I had maternity leave for both but only 3 months each. I
  16. Hi everybody, Around 10 months ago I quit work to move to another employer. I didn't wish to do so but after 6 months of appalling treatment at the hands of my manager I felt I had little alternative. I, like 3 other staff in the organisation, had complained to his manager about him but this hadn't solved the issue. On what turned out to be my last day I was verbally berated in a humiliating and demeaning fashion in front of other staff, which was then followed up with an email in which I was accused of lying and being deliberately disruptive (with choice sections highlighted in bold for
  17. Dear Dell Customer care , On 27th May,2013 I bought a "DELL INSPIRON 5521 Base (Service Tag : xxxxxxxxxx , Express Service Code : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)" at Peterborough,United Kingdom . Unfortunately, your product has not performed well since the very beginning . I am disappointed because I had to replace my faulty hard disk within 4 month of purchasing the laptop . Now before completion of 1 year , the LCD screen has turned into white and I am not being able to see anything on the screen. I have already communicated the same to the customer support centre of Dell care . Please note, my Lap
  18. Hi all I'm looking for some impartial advice as I'm currently really emotional about the situation. I work in the public sector and I'm a union rep but I deal with union learning so not really familiar with personal cases and such. I've worked in my current role for almost 3 years and for 18 months ot was fine, cue staff loses and increased workloads and I started making silly mistakes, at which point my new manager decided to make things difficult for me. I ended up off sick for over 3 months with work related stress due to bullying, however my management have always maintained tha
  19. Wonder if anyone can help me, I have been employed with the same company for 5 years, in the last 2 years we've had a couple of managers promoted from a very low level with no managerial experience. During this time period i have been subjected to what i feel discrimination, bullying, intimidation and general unfairly treated that also some colleagues have picked up on and notified me also. It has taken me to a point where im now off with work related stress and depression which is a living nightmare. After 2 years of this i have decided enough is enough and lodged a 7 page grievance
  20. Hi I have a question in 2 parts hope you can help? I have written a Grievance Letter to Employer, relating to a Sex Discrimination (Maternity) issue, as well as a second letter asking why I was suspended (no grounds given I was just escorted from the building), received no reply in more than a month, just sat at home Then chased it asking for communication.. received a 2 line reply saying lawyers would contact me but that the employer would reply in their own time First part: How long should I wait for a reply from my employer before it is reasonable to complete and submit
  21. I am tempted to raise a grievance with my employers as a result of being sidelined following maternity leave. I work in a senior management role and prior to mat leave my role was to run a big team with big budget. Since mat leave I've had a much lesser role, endless promises of a better one but nothing yet materialised or likely to in the near future. Where I think it is perhaps grey is that my employment contract just calls me senior manager in department x (rather than head of x line of business) and says something about being flexible and undertaking activities as allocated. Ho
  22. Hi, I'm preparing everything for a disability discrimination tribunal and I wondered what should normally be in the bundle. Is it all the evidence to help prove my case or is it something standardised? Thanks for any help.
  23. Hi all, Just looking for some advice on my situation. Basically I was subjected to 6 months of bullying/unreasonable treatment by a new boss (won't go in to details on that but several incidents, some witnessed, some not.) Several staff on my team including me complained to his boss, to no avail. All I got was mediation where he acted like he was the aggrieved party (surprise!) So I decided to get a job elsewhere, which I did, although I never wanted to leave. With two weeks of my notice left, I was called in to his office and berated in an aggressive and extremely abusive manner,
  24. Hi There, I'm seeking some advice on an issue I'm having with my employer. I have been off sick with anxiety and depression since march - in this time I was also made homeless which my employer was aware of. Occupational Health services advised my employer at the end of June that as long as they created a supported return to work and followed their recommendations I would be ready for a phased return to work by the end of July. The subsequent meetings with my direct line manager was a conversation about why he feels I'm not ready to return back to work, some of the reasons bein
  25. I raised 4 important issues with the Chief Officer during the redundancy process on procedure and suitable alternative employment but she chose to ignore dealing with them so I followed it up with a grievance during the redundancy process to her boss. The day after i raised the grievance I was made redundant so i put in a second grievance to say i had been unfairly dismissed. I was told that if i raised the grievance before the end of the consultation period and my my notice period which was one week after my dismissal notice letter they should halt proceedings until my issues and grievances
