Are you in union?
I am here. But I'm not sure I want to continue with you.
First, I don't know why it took you so long to see the response but I responded in 35 minutes. I suspect something went wrong with your email. But you need to understand that I am a senior practicing lawyer. I do not work for the site. And if you're now upset with the site and I suspect you are because of thr terminology that you use, I need your assurance that you understand that my rating has to reflect me, my service and my answer and not your upset with the site. I'm not willing to risk my stats on the site nor end up working for free because you are upset with the site.
If you understand that and you wish for me to continue let me know and I will do so. If not I will opt out.
I'm very sorry to hear about what has been happening to you at work.Your employer owes you a duty of care. The law is that your employer must provide you with a safe workplace. Safe does not just mean physically safe but it also means emotionally safe. This is not what is happening in your case. In fact, to the contrary you are being treated horribly, being harassed and bullied and your employer is allowing it to go on knowing that it is going on.You should speak to a lawyer in your hometown and you should discuss the issue of constructive dismissal.Essentially, if an employee is treated badly and cannot tolerate it anymore and must quit there are many times when that employee can sue the employer for wrongful dismissal just as if the employer dismissed the employee wrongly.I don't know if you're willing to quit though. Unfortunately, there is no way to compel an employer to do the right and fair things and continue to work for the employer.
I know you don't have money to retain a lawyer to sue.
But why don't you pay a lawyer a small fee to send a letter simply asserting your rights, demanding fair treatment and making your employer afraid you will sue so they start to take this very, very seriously?
If you cannot afford a lawyer you cannot pay a lawyer to fight for you. A letter is the best inexpensive approach.
