Hi, I have recently been advised that I have the opportunity to submit to an Ombudsman regarding an old employment issue. I am unsure as to the formal process writing the submission and whether I need to present only information that are supported by documentation? I am also concerned that the Ombudsman would like to share my details with the employer, and I am wondering what benefit and risks this serves to me? Can you help with some guidelines for writing the submission and advise me on the benefits and drawbacks of making my details available to the employer? Thanks
the issue involves bullying and unreasonable behavior. I was effectively terrorized by management for a number of years and unsupported by HR, Union and Senior Executives. Some staff confirmed privately with me the events, and others played the 'I have been silenced', 'I'd prefer to stay out of it' card. This experience resulted in me being diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder.
The Ombudsman has been recently appointed by the government due to multiple complaints raise over the years. I was employed there 7 years go. The Ombudsman is a private hire by the commonwealth government, and it is a private law firm inquiry to be submitted to the ministers and shared with the employer to review progress and policy.
I could provide a link to the submissions page...
