Buachaill :

1. I regret to say that in law, as an employee, you are duty bound to carry out whatever duties your employer requires of you, irrespective of personal differences with other workers. The mere fact a complaint was made does not allow you to refuse to work with that person. Accordingly, you will have to ignore your personal differences and work in the same smaller area of the department regardless of the fact the complaint was made. In law, you have no right to refuse to work with someone. To refuse to work would be grounds for a warning. So don't create a situation for yourself where you will be the one at fault.
