I was injured in 2009 and taken off work in 2010 after losing my memory and other symptoms. My employer's HR immediately began a campaign of harassment and threats - I was contacted over 40 times in six weeks, submitted detailed medical information four times, required to return to my doctor five times. I made written harassment complaints because it was affecting my ability to rest and recover.
My union president had a 'close' relationship with HR. The complaints were never investigated and the Union would not do anything. Then began the systemic character assassination and poisoning of work environment and my field of work (went beyond the employer and the Union). It was done through private phone calls, e-mails and texts - two years of freedom of information requests and two thousand records later, there is a clear picture of what happened and who was spreading lies - it all went back to the harassment complaint.
When I attempted to go back to work, we found out that my reputation had been destroyed. There were private agreements to block my return to work and delay it. Despite trying to resolve and fighting over it, my health substantially declined. I ended up with PTSD and no ability to deal with anything.
Tried to get multiple organizations to investigate but everyone circled the wagons. Nobody knows how to identify mobbing.
Will be publishing the records into a book about mobbing - it is the only thing that keeps me going now. I don't think I will ever get over it.
