Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Jenny replied 2 years ago.
Yes I have got that part so are you asking if you have a criminal case or an employment law case against the employer?
What has this got to do with the email about 20 hours?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it seems i have been working for the Royal Mail on a 20 hr contract with out ever signing one i,ve still 40 hr one , i was bulled when my wife was dying of a brain tumour 10yrs ago instead of dealing with it then they gave me 20 hrs to keep quiet now my 20 hrs don,t work , the amount of bullying i,ve had recently is beyond a joke
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
they haven,t mention wether it,s criminal or employment related i think they just want this to go away
Expert:  Jenny replied 2 years ago.
So are you saying you want to work 40 hours not 20?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i don,t know what there saying the whole thing is confusing
Expert:  Jenny replied 2 years ago.
I have made a request to talk to you on the phone as I can't really understand what is happening with your employer from what you are typing on here.
All that I can advise you to do is to raise a formal grievance about the way you have been bullied and treated by your employer. You should say that the treatment is having an impact on your health and safety and your employer is in breach of the duty to care for your health and safety.
You can potentially bring a personal injury claim against your employer in the event that you are still employed and their treatment is affecting your health.
The criminal issue is a matter for the police and CPS to decide if they will pursue. They don't tend to get involved in employment matters.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
