The contact with my girlfriend has been limited. The majority of the harassment and threats has been directed at me. There is a constant threat that if I don't leave the company then she will send my girlfriend all the details of our relationship. The call my girlfriend received at work seemed to be a show of power and a message to me that if I don't hurry up and resign, she can get in contact with my girlfriend at any time. There has been more specific threats to me saying that if I resign now, then she will leave my girlfriend alone.
I just want to know if this constitutes blackmail as I'm being threatened that if I don't leave my job now, she will tell my girlfriend everything. I have been looking jobs, but don't want to leave the company, especially under a threat which she could still carry out even if I did leave. I'm hoping if I inform her of the legal position around the threats and harassment, she will try to move on.
Thank you reply. I'm going to meet a solicitor this afternoon to discuss my options but just wanted a clarification of the law, which you have provided.
Many thanks help.
