october 2011 to jan 2013. she has made my life hell since i dismissed her finally because i couldn't put up with her increasing bad attitude and inability to work as a team. i sensed she was not genuine and had jealousy issues. she reported me to social services when she was dismissed, made up lies about me, gossiped to other nannies at the school and one mother told me about what she was saying, reported me for racism to the police, and now she wants compensation for unfair dismissal. what i want to achieve is some justice. i would like to sue her in any way i can in response to the lies and misery she has put me through. she has literally made the last year at my daughter's school la year of unhappiness and pain when it should have been one of the happiest. i feel that suing her for defamation, would go some way to redressing the balance. i would also like to know if there is any legal redress against her for wasting police time, harassment and being generally a lying cheating piece of work that needs shouldn't be allowed near a child as a nanny. she told my little girl horrible stories about stolen children, she was a complete covert bully.
