4 1/2 years at Barclaycard
hello are you there
Do you require more information?
Hello, sorry I was travelling earlier. What would you actually like to achieve in this situation?
I would like to achieve compensation for stress bullying intimidation having to leave a job that I was in for four and half years due to their procedures and his constant phone calls and agresiveness I was one of the top performers and have been left feeling worthless and emotional state. They have also got alot of other cases going through at the moment for the same thing.
You say you have found a new job, is that still going ahead?
Yes it is but even last night I could not sleep due to the upset I have received from Barclaycard
Is the pay in that job similar to the current one and when does it start?
I have started the new job in training at the moment same industry and the pay the same approx if hit bonus structure obvioulsy
ok thanks let me get my response ready please
The main claim that an employee, who is a victim of bullying can make, is for constructive dismissal. This occurs where they feel forced to leave their job due to the bullying. They would then make a claim in the employment tribunal and seek compensation for any loss of earnings that have resulted from being forced to give up their job. The main issue in this case is that you already have a new job and as such you do not have any ongoing losses. As such, making such a claim would be pointless because the best you would hope to recover is the pay you would have earned between leaving the old job and starting the new one. Considering the fees for making the claim are over £1,000, it is pointless to go and make such a claim in the circumstances.
So with the main claim available to you now an unrealistic option, the only other potential claim you could make is for personal injury, which is a claim for negligence against the employer. However, you must consider these factors first:
Compensation would depend on the seriousness of the injury you have suffered and would require you to obtain detailed medical evidence to confirm the extent of your injuries and how they affected you. After that you need to satisfy the other parts of the test as mentioned in the bullet points above.
So these are your options – the first would not be recommended due to the reasons I outlined, the second you will have to satisfy the requirements for claiming personal injury before you can expect any compensation. If you want to go down that route you need to consult a personal injury lawyer who can take that further for you.
I think due to more detail probably needed by yourself this is not really a constructive answer its just generic so not really helpful
I wont be using this service again as I expected more direction and questioning from yourself
ok what were you expecting please - the bottom of the matter is you have two options and that is it - the first is completely pointless to make in the circumstances due to the reasons explained above the second you need to obtain professional medical evidence to pursue. Whether I have more detail or not will not change your legal position
