A while ago, I have problems with one of my supervisors.
They were pushing me out, I did a complaint in HR, they did a disciplinary expedient to her and we carry on till now. Before I was confused, she was pushing me to go but, no one tell me anything against me as a employee and we carry on working together. My situation is the same as before, but now I am knowing many things that I didn,t Know before, wich is all of these, and now they want me to go really really.
I am sure that they are doing a kind of investigation about me, trying to catch me in anything wrong.

Hi, sorry we keep missing each other when we are online. In relation to your query, a good starting point is to look at The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and related statutory instruments, which impose a general duty on employers to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all their employees. This includes a duty to undertake risk assessments and manage matters in order to reduce any obvious health risks at work. In addition, under common law an employer owes a duty of care towards its employees, the breach of which can amount to negligence.
The Health & Safety Executive has published a guidance booklet on what employers and employees should do if there is a risk of infection with such viruses:
Another useful guide can be found here:
So if you believe that the employer is not taking any steps to reduce any obvious risks of cross-contamination and is exposing its employees to infection, then you can certainly raise this as a health and safety issue with them. You have the formal grievance procedure at your disposal, but if that does not resolve the situation then you have to consider whether it is worth taking the matter further. You can complain to your local authority environmental health department, and finally you may also consider the final step of resigning and making a claim for constructive dismissal in the employment tribunal.
