What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Work and Online Calender Monitored by Co-Worker

by Debbie

I work for a government department that shares an office with another large organisation. We have calendars on our computers in which we can put appointments etc. One of my work colleagues who I know doesn't like me. Someone told me she regularly checks my work to see if I have made mistakes and if I have she emails my line managers.

Anyway I went to work today one of the secretaries from the other organisation said that this woman really hates me and that they all know what I am doing because she has shown them my calendar. The calendar is for everyone in my company to view but this lady the secretary does not work for my company. I felt humiliated and felt that some kind of confidentiality had been breached and data protection.

Not sure what to do if I should take it further, I have had quite a few run ins with her.

There is no real reason for her to check my online calendar as I am not a manager I am an admin person so its not important to know what I am doing on what day and anyway she knew what I was doing yesterday as I was working at another site.

Can I take it further? I would like an apology and for her to stop checking my work, its beginning to really stress me out. I have spoken to my line manager who is going to speak to her - this is not the first time but I want it to stop. HELP.
