UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Is your employer taking any formal action against you ass a result?
The best you can do in this situation is to make a complaint about this to your employer. As this is an issue between two work colleagues and it involves the working environment the employer can deal with it. If you were to go ahead and raise a formal grievance about this then the employer would be obliged to investigate the complaint and determine if there is any evidence to justify taking further action. If they believe that to be the case then it is possible for them to deal with it as they see fit. This could be an informal warning or even formal disciplinary action. You cannot do much to take personal action against this person and as such I would suggest you do this via your employer's formal grievance procedure.
Please let me know if this has answered your query or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this?
