Hello

Sadly there is little you can do in regard to the matter.

Mental anguish and the like is so very hard to prove in such matters.

I would like to give you better advice but i cant give false info / hope.

Your husband can however file a lodgement of an unfair dismissal claim.

But this needs to be done within 14 days.

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I have been seeing doctors because anxiety problems and my employer had records of my panic attack days which i needed to be off work for 4 days. Also because of her we had been to more than 10 times professional counselling because of the drama she caused in our marriage. Can that be the evidences ? Unfortunately it was my husband's boss who advised him to quit before the company starts investigating as it will bring him a bad reputation for future so we are not really in a position to lodge the unfair dismissal claim. I would really like to do something to sue her for causing me all these griefs which was not needed.


Thanks again.


Regards

You are in a position for unfair dismissal because it seems like a constructive dismissal that was unair.

My advice above still stands, sadly.
