I am not english, don't know about english law

OK I understand, and can I just check if your partner is able to raise a formal grievance at all against his boss?

Hi there, if he has been physically assaulted then that is a matter for the police and it is a criminal issue, rather than a civil one. You should therefore approach your local police station to complain about the abuse he has received and ask that they investigate further
