It’s not unusual…

Following the revelations of sexual harassment and assault - and allegations of rape - by Harvey Weinstein that filled the news media a few weeks ago, I recently heard Sir Tom Jones on the radio admitting that something similar was attempted against him early in his career. There have been many scandals involving sexual harassment and abuse (including child abuse) in recent years; among the most notorious sexual predators here in the UK were Jimmy Saville and Cyril Smith, not to mention the…See More

A tale of two bullies... Can you help?

Posted on July 13, 2017 at 10:00 0 Comments

My cousin Laura told me when we caught up recently that she’d left her job with nothing else to go to, and she was sure she’d made the right decision. I was surprised: Laura has always been a very solid and responsible woman, and has worked continuously since the children were in their teens. Perhaps she had taken early retirement? No, despite being 62 years of age, that wasn’t it. She’d left because she’d been bullied at work for about six months, and had…

I recently received a call from an individual needing some advice about his employment situation. He had seen his own job advertised, which had alarmed him, so he’d gone to talk to the MD. He was told that the company was restructuring to save money and three existing roles were going to be combined into two. This would normally be a redundancy situation but the company wasn’t minded to go through a proper selection process – they were just planning to replace…
