Hi, I have had nothing but grief for a few years from my employer. A local council. I have put in a few complaints of bullying, being treated differently etc but always tried to just do my job. I have challeneged my employer in the correct process but it is very much an old boys club Yesterday I was suspended on a possible gross misconduct charge of theft of council time and frog marched out the building. I admitted to using the internet but I have to alot as I am the only person that does my job and I network with other specialists around the country for advice. I have to do this as they have refused to send me on any training etc for 4 years despite my job needing to be completely up to date with current and statute law. I get refused everything but everyone else is ok. I raise this as an issue every year and when I was turned down again I was told to source then information for free from other resources. I did use the I internet to book a holiday whilst at work, I admit that, but I leave the internet on in the background as I am always in and out of reference sites. This latest episode started a couple of weeks ago when I was told I was not allowed to use my own car anymore for visits,I said it wasn't fair and sent a spotty email to my manager saying I will challenge it as it was not yet policy. This went to her manager, then to their manager and I was ccalled in the next day to apologise. Whilst there I was then told my internet use was excessive and they would investigate, I was questioned about why my leave was all used up and 2 very pathetic other issues, going to dentist and working over my hours a little. I was then told I would be looking at a verbal or written warning and to keep my head Down and work hard. On Friday I was called back in and told off about using too much colour ink??? The head of the service said that others had done it and far more than me but I had better watch myself. Then yesterday I was suspended. I have been off sick several times with work place stress, I had a total hysterectomy whilst I was in The job after being raped and not supported and they tried to stop me going to counseling, I am no longer with the union so what do I do? Request data subject all I can, put an FOI in for all employees I internet usage? I think this is disproportionate, a verbal warning at most. I feel criminalized too. Everyone goes on the internet, why ani pulled up for it? Is it because of my sexuality? Please, please help. They cannot get away with this. I also won a national award for my work last November so they cannot say I don't do my job
