Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
This is not assault and there will be no criminal implications in this case. This is a purely employment matter where the employer has acted unreasonably and the employee in question is able to pursue this via recognised employment methods, which would initially involve the formal grievance procedure, after which they are looking at a potential resignation and a claim for constructive dismissal. These are the accepted ways of resolving such matters.
