16 years this June
were you specifically asked not to disclose the move to anyone?
If she said it at the meeting I wasn't aware of it because I was so upset. The only time I was aware that I wasn't to disclose the move was when I received the confirmation letter regarding the outcome of the meeting a week later.
Are you still working on it?
yes I am, will respond shortly
Thank you, ***** ***** it had gone a bit quiet.!
Ok so to answer your questions:
Thank you for the information. It reinforces what I think. I agree with all your points. I did lodge a grievance procedure against Karen for harassment. I have been offered that management will drop their grievance from formal to informal but I have to drop mine completely. My union rep states that it is possible they could revert back to formal if not happy and therefore I would have nowhere to go if they are not happy with the answers they get. The management have admitted if they are not happy with answers they could revert back to formal
What would you suggest I accept as a resolution?
if you were to compromise and drop your complaint and the employer then reverts to a formal procedure it does not prevent you from raising the issues yourself again, especially if you believe that the employer has not acted fairly or reasonably in the circumstances.
It was obvious to all staff, they knew the issues I was having with Karen, there was no secret to this and when I told them I was being moved they automatically must have assumed it was over my problems with her. I have worked with these people for a very long time and we all know each other very well and what the other is usually thinking.
that will certainly help, also the fact that you do not recall receiving any specific instructions not to mention it and also that the employer would have told employees had they raised the question
Thank you for your help. Now to go to battle with HR !!!! Many thanks
Best of luck! Hope it goes well
