Customer Question

My employer has suggested I am unhappy at work and that I have overlooked greeting co workers in the morning. I responded by saying I was not unhappy but text staff shortages had made for a stressful environment. As for not greeting co workers I am not aware of doing that. I ask for an example or date when this happened and the name of the co worker. My employer declined to provide any further information. I work for a small GP practice.... where do I go from here

What are you hoping to achieve please?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I feel slightly bullied and want to know whether I have right to know when this incident occurred and whether it was witnessed or recorded
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 4 months ago.

Thank you. Whilst you certainly have the right to ask the employer to give you information in relation to it, they cannot be forced to release this. This is especially the case if the person who made the complaint initially has asked them to keep it confidential. They may have had to disclose it had formal disciplinary action been taken against you, but that is not the case. If you do feel bullied though you have the right to raise a formal grievance to complain about this treatment and to potentially get this matter dealt with more formally. The outcome could be that they back off or do not consider taking any other more formal action against you.
