you need to ask a solicitor, and it will cost, but it will mean if successful he cannot come within x metres of you

 

No, he wouldn't be able to work with you

indeed i do if i take only your version of events, that said i've learned there are usually 2+ versions of every story when you take both sides opinion, emotions and especially interpretation into account.

 

that said if all of this is 100% backed up by evidence using the same words you have you can consider appealing the decision but i can only see two reasons for this

 

a) your manager is inexperienced in employment matters

b) what i said above

What I find worrying is that someone accused of violence is working in a care home. Presumably staff are subject to CRB checks, and of course he's innocent until proved guilty, but surely there has to be a duty of care to the residents.

 

Im not an expert by any means but having worked in a care home am surprised this person hasn't been suspended pending the outcome of the trial. Bullying staff is bad enough, but exposing vulnerable residents to allegedly violent staff is quite another.

 

Is the home regulated by the Care Quality Commission? If so I'd be inclined to give them a ring, even if it's anonymously.

What you could do is contact the police and let them know about the threats. They may well then issue a harassment warning.

 

If they do, then tell your employer, as they can't then continue to employ you both - and he could well be sacked.

i am a witness in a case against a fellow employee. he has since sent me threatening text messages, and threatened me in town infront of other members of staff who have veriifed what i have said. i informed my boss of the texts and what happened in town and we had a meeting where i was told that

A. i shouldnt have brought the matter to work

B. i should not tell other members of staff what happened

c. i wasted managments time with the issue an just get on with it

 

 

also worth noting that the man recieved no punishment for this from manager. and that he has been warned by the police for harassing me. i dont feel able to work with this man as he has been convicted of serious charges in the past complying of abh assault drug dealing among others and i feel threatened in my workplace and i feel i have no managment protection due to him and my manager being good friends outside of work. what can i do and what are my rights please??

You should tell her you lied.

 

you are not judge and jury, what you think does not come into this, you should only give an account of what you saw.

 

it is up to the people looking into the case to make a decision.

 

you have added information that is untrue, if believed it will stop the person getting a fair hearing.

 

I was in a similar situation, a work college was asked to attend a fact finding interview about an allegation against me and asked me what he should say. I told him to tell the truth and say what he saw, I asked him what he saw and he proceeded to tell me all about the alleged incident by way of gossip he had heard, I told him there was no way he had seen that happen and he agreed. I told him to tell what he saw.

 

If he had not spoken to me the case would have probably been proven against me from a statement formed from gossip/hearsay which was totally untrue.

 

For information the allegation against me was unfounded, witnesses should stop reading between the lines and thinking they are helping out. If you are a witness, say what you saw and don't add 2 and 2 together and come up with 5. You will(hopefully) come unstuck.

 

I would not think a statement taken by your employer will have any place in a court, the defence would have it thrown out .

 

However if your employer is aware by attending the court hearing that you gave her a different statement, then I would think she would want to speak to you.

I see from the other forum you posted on, that you now are saying you only thought you lied to your employer.

 

So is everything good now?

 

Very confusing, all these different threads, on different forums as well.

yes my statement is the same as i told the police. (truthfull). i just got confused as all.

 

whats happened recently is that he threatened me via text and then again in town in full view of 2 other colleagues. yet all my boss has done is this:- told me to forget the issue and put behind me, get over it, dont bring the issue to work again.

 

the police issued a stage one harrasemnt order. because he was harrasing a witness. yet our boss has done not one thing about it workwise. im not happy at this as what kind of message does it send out??? she also said that she dosent have to do a thing because it happened out of work. also worth noting that they have been friends for years.

 

iv had a guts full and ontop of this i was due for more hours come april but this has since been revoked, with no reason given.

i also recieved a christmas bonus of £5 whilst all other employees recieved atleast £20

Hi Sorry for butting in late,

Threats aside, by your own admission you are an `unreliable witness` and your inconsistent testimony in a court of law will be laughed out of court. best of luck

If you leave the company, give them proper notice and tell them you will be claiming constructive dismissal.

This does seem a strange situation.

 

I would class this as a work matter if an employee threatens another, whether at work or not.

 

Has he continued after the police warning, I would imagine he is on bail, doesn't this have any influence on the matter.

 

Since he hasn't been found guilty yet, your employer may be waiting the outcome of the court case.

 

regarding the extra hours and xmas bonus, I think I would want the reason.
