This could actually amount to bullying, which The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) defines as “offensive, intimidating, malicious or insulting behaviour, an abuse or misuse of power through means that undermine, humiliate, denigrate or injure the recipient.” Whatever form it takes, it is unwarranted and unwelcome to the individual subjected to it.
If there have never been any issues with your tattoos, and there have never been any complaint about them, introducing a new policy that prohibits them would be deemed unreasonable and unnecessary because the employer is not trying to deal with any specific issues associated with them.
In terms of what the victim of bullying can do to try and deal with such problems, the following steps are recommended:
In general, a victim should try and gather as much evidence as possible before considering making a formal complaint and certainly before going down the resignation route. As bullying often takes verbal form, the best way is to keep a detailed diary of all bullying occasions so that there is at least some reference in written form that the employer and/or the tribunal can refer to.
many thanks for your help I have been keeping notes and dates on meetings etc with my line manager as im not allowed to speak to the head teacher as an employee or a parent only by letters because of the data protection issue,
at this stage you may wish to consider the grievance route as it is the first step one would be expected to take
ok thank you for your help
you are most welcome, all the best
