And you can go tell the union or my boss or whoever the f**k you like because it wont matter because its my word aginst yours and ive done this before and they wont believe you"I did report it as soon as it happened and have been off work with full pay for the last 10month as im to scared to go back as management have supposedly investigated and found that it could not be proven (suprise suprise).In fact the supervisor in question has since been promoted.I however have been put on strong medication for deppression and have driven myself off the road on purpose and have been assessed to spend some time in a mental health facility.my relationship has failed and ive even lost friendships out of this.i honnestly dont know what to do.....plaese can i get some advice leya williams
well i dont know what i should be doing
i honnestly dont know what to do. So for the time being, you don't have to come in to work but they are still paying you? Is that correct?
yes that right but yesterday they asked me to come in to do a return to work plan
In that case your options are to begin the process of returning to work, or alternatively to resign and find new employment. The second option might be the better one if this person is still working there and would continue to have regular contact with you.Should you have any other questions, please let me know.
