I have been stood down from my position as a drill supervisor

This answer was rated:

I have been stood down from my position as a drill supervisor for five weeks now after I tied to demote an employee from driller to a trainee. At the time I tied to demote him he made allegations against me of bullying and harassment. I have not been issue with any disciplinary action and the outcomes of the investigation and the initial allegations have been scarcely explained to me. Do I have a case for defamation against the individual and can I also take action against the company for the way in which they poorly conducted the investigation?

Just to confirm, you have been demoted from driller to trainee?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No I am the supervisor. I was the one demoting a driller to a trainee. During this process the driller has accused me of bullying and harassment.

Hello

 

Simply demoting a person for failure to perform is not alone bullying and harassment.

 

In such matters, you being treated in such a manner, you need to be given each and every complaint and respond to it.

 

Your employer has not given you ample time and consideration.

 

You are open to complain to fair work Australia, giving them a chance to look to the situation, as it is clear that they have dealt with the matter so horribly.

 

Fair work will look into the matter strongly.

 

Pleaser accept.
