Is it definitely over 2 years? How do you know that the employer has approached someone else?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I work for a youth orginisation and I am part of the permenant staff it is a voulinteer who rallies around less robust voulinteers and encoureges them to write to my employer if they dont get their way, my employer always take the voulinteers side an I have been fighting to survive for the past 16 months a s the person who is orginising this has a hold on other to do her bidding bt they are unwilling to support this as it may have an impact on their voulitary prospects, this person has been in the orginisation for around 8 years.

Ok have you raised a complaint with your employer about this? Do they propose any disciplinary action against you?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i have raised this with my employer and i was asked to drop it last year which I foolishly did and now I am aware that htere is another complain waiting for me from some one who resigned as a voulinteer and stated that part of this was he was not allowed to do an event with kid which Iit was unsafe, the voulinteer has left but since then the senior voulinteer has contacted them and told them to subbmit a letter blaming me for there decision two months after the alleged event. I still cannot prove this as I was informed by a reliable person who does not want to be named but wanted to let me know that this is sitting with my employed, my employer has not approached me yet but I am aare this will be coming soon

Ok well the best thing you can do if you are worried about this and have reason to suspect you are being treated badly by this other person is to raise a formal grievance. Your employer cannot take action against you for doing this and have a duty to protect your health and safety and of trust and confidence to ensure you are not treated badly by the volunteers in the workplace. At the moment it is impossible to say if there will be a complaint against you or if this might lead to disciplinary action, in order for them to take disciplinary action you need to have committed an act of misconduct so they would need more evidence than the fact that someone has simply complained about you. Is there anything further you would like to know about this?
