Yes it is in Scotland . There may be a non -disclosure clause involving the amount awarded to myself and the people involved in the case . But it states that the sum awarded will be claimed back if I were to make any disparaging remarks or comments against the staff involved . As I have mentioned , I only intend to go by the documented facts of the case and stick to them , which includes the dialogue transcripts .
The reason I want to publish it is because the company were in breach of several procedures their own company anti-harassment policy rules and regulations . The breaches includes a breach of confidentiality by a supervisor to whom I had written to regarding the harassment issue about this manager .The supervisor passed on my letter of complaint to the manager I was complaining against instead of passing to to the HR manager .
Also , the company claimed that my complaint could not be investigated as it had happened 10 years before and could not be investigated , even though transcripts from the investigating manager suggests that they were aware of a problem existing between myself and this manager before I made a formal complaint...
If the last paragraph is confusing you , let me explain. . The manager in question was a supervisor at the time of the harassment incident . The man shoved his face close to me as I was doing my job , while he sat right next to me . he did this while he claimed that he was "assessing me" regarding my "poor performance" which is not on my record . Through being rather naieve at the time , when I went to my line manager( this guy's boss) I did not make a formal complaint as my line manager indicated to me that he was aware of what had happened and that he did not sanction it . I moved to another area after about 7 months later and I never felt comfortable about it when I found out that nothing had been done about this man and that he had now become a manager just 12 months after the incident ( but not a manager in my area. ). .
After I mentioned about the incident in my area , one or two superviors started harassing my self but in a different way . After 10 years I had a mental breakdown and attempted to take my life with an overdose of a drugs cocktail and a full bottle of vodka , but my body just rejected the whole lot and I regurgitated everything back out . As a result I decided to take time off work. During my time off work I learnt that this manager was now going to become my manager .
It was at this point I wrote a letter to a supervisor (who I thought I knew) explained the situation about how I felt about this person and asked the supervisor to keep matters confidential as I was going to take the matter up to a higher office . However this supervisor did not keep it confidential and instead reported it to the man who I was making the complaint against and showed him the letter , which is a breach of the company regulations .
As you can see I have a lot to say about the whole thing and I feel that this is something that people should know about even if I have to change names of the people involved in this .
