What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

No Disciplinary Action Taken Against Three Culprits

by Sephen

I work for a company on a government building. One night I was in on overtime (escorting sub-contractors) on another building, when I went into the workshop I was approached by a colleague in a very abrupt manner, and forced to sit in a chair.

Then one of the other engineers started on me about taking holiday time off on my 4 days shift instead of on my 4 nights as they lost out on the overtime as my time off was covered by one of the day shift engineers who got 3 hours overtime each of the 4 days. Also another engineer complained that they lost out on 5 days overtime as in my contract I only get 20 days holiday/annum and they get 25 days.

The third person who was very abrupt in the first instance behaved in a very aggressive manner. This was reported to management as a grievance. A formal HR investigation was carried out, and no disciplinary was action was taken against of the three culprits. Two of the culprits got off scot free and the third one was spoken to, two of them are now giving me the silent treatment. One of them is making it very unpleasant atmosphere when I am on site at the same time as him during a shift handover.
