Hello, I am Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor in a High Street practice. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008. During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousands of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects.
Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might not always respond in minutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear with me in that case It is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with me while I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able to advise you fully.
Unless I have all the facts that I need, my answer would not be accurate.
I have been a Team Leader happily until recently for 19 years at the same care workplace. . A certain staf membrf who has caused trouble with all other staff began to complain approx. 6 months ago that she was not being treated by myself the same has the rest. I ask my Manager for help with this, he declined. This staff member then brought about an Harassment investigation when I was proven to be not guilty. Her complaints continued, until I have recently requested a transfer due to being so unhappy with the situation. Upon my leaving I wrote a private card addressed to my colleagues. The message inside said Will miss you lots. stick together. look after yourselves and beware of the witch. The staff member that has constantly accused me of wrongdoings was not included on the card, because of this my employers say I have harassed and violated her. This card was opened by another staff from a different unit who was working a sleep-in shift (although the card was addressed Private to a specific colleague) she then,,photographed on her mobile and then showed the message to the person making the harassment allegations. I now have a disciplinary meeting, because my employers agree with her. Surely this person would not have been aware of the contents if a private correspondence had not been opened and shown to her. Many thanks.
No I have not left the trust which I have worked for the last 20 years I have just transferred to another unit because of lack of support from my Manager with this ongoing onslaught of being accused of harassment from just 1 member of staff, despite remaining staff verifying to him that all staff were treated with respect and fairly but he has been reluctant to
to offer any help when I have asked him to intervene.
