I could have carried on coming into work until the end of my fixed term contract (which turned out to be permanent anyway) and then leave at the end of June
All problems were reported and the member of staff was given several crucial conversation. Suspended once but was still working for them when I left in March
Yes I do have a signed compromise agreement which is over a year old. My alternative was to come in working until the end of June and then have to leave the company. They made that quite clear even after I informed them I didnt want to leave. They still insisted it was for the best for my health although this was no taffecting my work performance. They told me that also. At one point whilst we were trying to take action against a member of the team through gross misconduct, including fighting, drunkeness, racial comments, failing to attend work and so on, the director told me he did not want tribunals on his hands he would just dismiss somebody. This never happened. I reported everything including the theft of my property and HR handling stolen goods. All of which were ignorned apart from me being given councelling and a suggestion I do a course on dealing with difficult people. The company acted under handedly and lied whilst I was in a vunerable state of mind. I felt bullied and intimidated into submission . I know now I should have appealed at the time but I was assured my position was going whatever
I just wanted to know if I was the victim of a constructive dismissal
