Hello, my name is***** am a qualified solicitor and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long have you worked there for?

Six years
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
have you reported this to the employer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not yet. It's difficult as I work for very wealthy people who aren't always that interested in their staff. We don't have HR or any kind of personnel dept. I'm keep finding more and more evidence that he's used to make my job difficult and its reached a crux. The main thing is he is leaving soon and I wanted to know if I had any grounds before he actually left

Your rights here are limited to making a complaint against this person with the employer. This is an internal matter and one which can only really be resolved by the employer. You have the legal right to consider raising a formal grievance, which is basically a complaint with the employer. The employer would then be required to hold a grievance hearing with you to hear your complaint and they will then deal with the issues as they see fit. In cases similar to yours it could mean that the employer disciplines the guilty employee, for example by issuing them with a warning or even dismissing them. So if you are looking at taking action over this, the grievance is the only option open to you in the circumstances. I hope this has answered your query.
